Here we will discuss and show you how to figure out which number is a factor of 12, but not a multiple of 3.

The most common way to determine which number is a factor of 12, but not a multiple of 3, is to simply list the factors of 12 and the multiples of 3 so you can compare the two lists.

The answer to "Which number is a factor of 12, but not a multiple of 3?" would be all the numbers that are on the Factors of 12 list, but not on the Multiples of 3 list.

Factors of 12: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12

Multiples of 3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15...

**Answer: 1, 2, 4**

Alternatively, you can figure out which number is a factor of 12, but not a multiple of 3, by dividing every factor of 12 by 3. The answer would be all the quotients that are not integers.

**Factor, but not a Multiple**
