  2. Take 2. 2 x 248 = 496, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...248496

  3. Now take 3... no. 496/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 124 = 496, so we add these to our list of factors.
    124...124248496

  5. Now try 5... nope! 496/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6... no good. 496/6 isn't a whole number. So we skip 6.

  7. Take 7... no. 496/7 isn't a whole number. So we skip 7.

  8. Now take 8. 8 x 62 = 496, so we add these to our list of factors.
    1248...62124248496

  9. Next try 9... nope! 496/9 isn't a whole number. So we skip 9.

  10. Now try 10... no good. 496/10 isn't a whole number. So we skip 10.

  11. Try 11... no. 496/11 isn't a whole number. So we skip 11.

  12. Take 12... no luck. 496/12 isn't a whole number. So we skip 12.

  13. Now take 13... nope! 496/13 isn't a whole number. So we skip 13.

  14. Next try 14... no good. 496/14 isn't a whole number. So we skip 14.
