  1. Try 1. 1 x 40 = 40, so put these into our factor list.
    1...40

  2. Take 2. 2 x 20 = 40, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...2040

  3. Now take 3... no. 40/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 10 = 40, so we add these to our list of factors.
    124...102040

  5. Now try 5. 5 x 8 = 40, so put these into our factor list.
