What are Divisors of 36

A number n is a divisor of 36 if $\frac{36}{n}$ is an integer. Note that if 36/n=m is an integer, then both m and n will be the divisors of 36.

To find the divisors of 36, we need to find the numbers n such that 36/n becomes an integer. We have:

36/1=36 1, 36 are divisors of 36.
36/2=18 2, 18 are divisors of 36.
36/3=12 3, 12 are divisors of 36
36/4=9 4, 9 are divisors of 36
36/6=6 6 is a divisor of 36

There are no numbers other than the above ones which can divide 36. Thus the divisors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 36. Thus, the total number of divisors of 36 is nine.
