Is there a quick way to find any of the even factors of the #28 without having to divide every possible number?

1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28 are its factors , and I want to know if there is a way I can tell if 4 or 14 were factors without having to do guessing division

Not really, you just have to know them, or be able to see that 28 is twice 14 as 1+1=2 and 4+4=8, and 20 is divisible by 4 and so is 8. It's on how your mind works, whether you can see how the numbers fit together. Some people can't some can.

divide by 2 first, if the answer is an even number, then 4 is also a factor.
