C Program to Display Factors of a Number

Example to find all the factors of an integer (entered by the user) using for loop and if statement.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following C programming topics:

Factors of a number

This program takes a positive integer from the user and displays all the positive factors of that number.

Example: Factors of a Positive Integer

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
    int number,i;

    printf("Enter a positive integer: ");
    printf("Factors of %d are: ", number);

    for(i=1; i <= number; ++i)
        if (number%i == 0)
            printf("%d ",i);

    return 0;


Enter a positive integer: 60
Factors of 60 are: 1 2 3 4 5 6 12 15 20 30 60

In the program, a positive integer entered by the user is stored in variable number.

The for loop is iterated until i <= number is false. In each iteration, whether number is exactly divisible by i is checked (condition for i to be the factor of number) and the value of i is incremented by 1.
