INTRODUCTION OF FACTORS & MULTIPLES

**INTRODUCTION OF FACTORS & MULTIPLES**

**FACTORS & MULTIPLES –**

**If a given number is exactly divisible by another number,
that number is called a FACTOR of the given numbers, while the given number is
called a MULTIPLE of the other number. For better understanding, we are
introducing some example –**

**Example.1) 30 = 3 X 5
X 2, so 2, 3 & 5 are factors of 30. Also 30 is a multiple of 2, 3 & 5 . further ( 2 X 3 = 6, 3 X 5 =
15, 2 X 5 = 10 ) or 6, 15, 30, are also the factors of 30. **

**Example.2) 15 = 3 X 5, so 3 & 5 are factors of 15. Also 15 is a multiple of 3 & 5**

**Example.3) 80 = 2 X 2
X 2 X 2 X 5, so 2, 2, 2, 2 & 5 are factors of 80, also 80 is a multiple of
2, 2, 2, 2 & 5. Further ( 2 X 2 =
4, 4 X 2 = 8, 8 X 2 = 16,
4 X 5 = 20, 5 X 8 =40 ) or 4, 8, 16, 20, 40 are also the Factors of
80. **

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

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