Here we will define what "the divisors of 18" means and show you how to find the divisors of 18.
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 18 are all the unique whole number divisors that make the quotient a whole number if you make the dividend 18:
18 / Divisor = Quotient
To find all the divisors of 18, we first divide 18 by every whole number up to 18 like so:
18 / 1 = 18
18 / 2 = 9
18 / 3 = 6
18 / 4 = 4.5
Then, we take the divisors from the list above if the quotient was a whole number. This new list is the Divisors of 18.
The Divisors of 18 are as follows:
1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 18.
Enter another number to get all its divisors:
Divisors of 19
Here is the next number that we calculated all the divisors for.
