**Divisors of 15**

Here we will define what "the divisors of 15" means and show you how to find the divisors of 15.

First, note that in a division problem like x divided by y equals z, x is the dividend, y is the divisor, and z is the quotient as illustrated here:

Dividend / Divisor = Quotient

Divisors of 15 are all the unique whole number divisors that make the quotient a whole number if you make the dividend 15:

15 / Divisor = Quotient

To find all the divisors of 15, we first divide 15 by every whole number up to 15 like so:

15 / 1 = 15

15 / 2 = 7.5

15 / 3 = 5

15 / 4 = 3.75

etc...

Then, we take the divisors from the list above if the quotient was a whole number. This new list is the Divisors of 15.

The Divisors of 15 are as follows:

**1, 3, 5, and 15.**
