FACTORS & MULTIPLES

__Factors & Multiples__

**If the given number
is a multiple of the other number, while a given number is exactly divisible by
another number, that number is called a factor of the given number. For example
– 15, 3, & 5, whereas 3 & 5 are the factors of 15 and 15 is the
multiple of 3 & 5.**

**Since for every whole
number x , x 1 x , we can conclude the following **

**Every number is a
factor of itself and 1 is a factor of every number.**

**Every number is a
multiple of itself and of 1**

**Now consider x number
x. its multiples are x 1, x
2, x 3, thus every number has countless multiples.**
