Here we will show you two different methods you can use to determine if 7 is a factor of 50.
The first method entails simply listing all factors of 50 and then seeing if 7 is one of them. The factors of 50 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, and 50. Looking at the list, you see that 7 is not on the list, and the answer to "Is 7 a factor of 50?" is therefore no.
For the second and perhaps easier method, we divide 50 by 7 to see if the quotient is a whole number or fractional number. If the quotient is a whole number, then 7 is a factor of 50. If the quotient is a fractional number, then 7 is not a factor of 50.
50 divided by 7 is 7.142857143 which is a fractional number. Thus, once again, the answer to "Is 7 a factor of 50?" is no.
