## CheetahBooks1 3 years ago n is the set of real numbers that are factors of 12

1. moser90

do you have choices?

2. moser90

does 1 go into 12

3. moser90

start at 1 and go to 12 which ever number goes into 12 is your set

4. CheetahBooks1

5. helder_edwin

every REAL number (except zero) is a factor of 12

6. CheetahBooks1

are you sure, that's noot what my teacher said

7. moser90

I can not just give you the answer I asked you if 1 goes into 12

8. CheetahBooks1

yes, it does

9. moser90

then go from there 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

10. CheetahBooks1

but how would you write in set notaion form

11. helder_edwin

are u sure he/she said REAL NUMBERS? division is always possible in the real numbers system. but in the integers, it is quite a different thing.

12. CheetahBooks1

no! integers

13. moser90

just by using this {

14. CheetahBooks1

thanks a lot!!!

15. helder_edwin

if it is the integers, then the set of factors of 12 is the set of divisors of 12. what numbers divide (exactly) 12??

16. CheetahBooks1

oh, okay! thank you!!!!

17. CheetahBooks1

btw, what grade are you in?

18. helder_edwin

i'm a math professor at my city's public university

19. CheetahBooks1
