Begin a list of factors of a number by first listing the number along with the number one. This is because any integer divided by itself will always result in the number one. Next, test whether the number is divisible by two without a remainder, by three without a remainder and so on. For example, 18 divided by two is nine, and 18 divided by three is six. Attempting to divide 18 by four or five results in a remainder.

Since prior calculations have already established that six is a factor of 18, there is no need to test for more factors.
