Factor Pairs

Multiplying creates products, factoring separates a product into the numbers that make it up. We thus start with the table and then look at the axes to find the factor pairs that make the product. Once again we focus on the patterns in the times table so that you can not only go from factors to their products but from products back to their factors. Factors and factoring become very important in algebra and in making headmath much easier.
