What is the divisor of forty two?


Wiki User

There are multiple divisors for every composite number.

If you restrict it to asking for prime factors, then 42=2*3*7, all of which are prime and cannot be further reduced. If you expand the question to allow composite factors, then 2*3=6 would be a divisor, as would 2*7 or 3*7 for example.
