    I will do 1365, you guys do the other.

    start by finding the prime factorization. so start at the smallest prime and divide until you get only prime numbers.

    1365, i can get a 5 out of this

    1365 = 5*273 ..........now i can get 3 out of the 273

    1365 = 5*3*91 ........now i can get a 7 out of the 91

    1365 = 5*3*7*13 ....that's it, these are all prime numbers, so we can't factor anything else out.

    now all the factors are +/- 1, as well as the +/- values of all the primes you see above, as well as all the combinations of the primes.

    so the factors are the +/- values of: 1, 3, 5, 7, 13, 15, 21, 35, 39, 65, 91, 105, 195, 273, 455 and finally 1365

    i hope i didn't miss any
