Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have 1001 M&Ms to share among 12 friends (plus yourself). Can you divide them evenly? Factoring 1001 = 7*11*13 would allow you to immediately see that you can. Just the first example that popped into my head :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just try to think of some other instance where you might need to divide something and thus it would behoove you to know whether one number contains the other as a factor.
