Whenever we are asked to list the distinct positive factors of a certain number should 1 be included in it as well? As it makes a lot of difference in many questions that I know of. Please help me get through this.

1 is a positive number and 1 is a factor of all integers. So yes, 1 should be included in distinct positive factors of a certain number.

Provide an example question where you see this and let us know if you have more doubts.

I don't have an example in mind right now but have come across questions in relation to the same. So basically, whatsoever happens if the question/condition matches to 1 I should definitely list it, is that correct? Post a question if you've one in mind. Thanks
