## What are Divisors of 32

A number n is a divisor of 32 if $\dfrac{32}{n}$ is an integer. Note that if 32/n=m is an integer, then both m and n will be the divisors of 32.

To find the divisors of 32, we need to find the numbers n such that 32/n becomes an integer. We have:

No numbers other than 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 can divide 32. So we conclude that:

• The divisors of 32 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32.
• The total number of divisors of 32 is six.

## Negative Divisors of 32

We know that if m is a divisor of a number, then -m is also a divisor of that number.

As the divisors of 32 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32, we can say that:

The negative divisors of 32 are -1, -2, -4, -8, -16, and –32.

## Prime Divisors of 32

The divisors of 32 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32. Among these numbers, only 2 is a prime number. So we obtain that:

The only prime divisor of 32 is 2.
