Any number has a set of multiples. These multiples are that number multiplied by various integers. For example, the multiples of 3 are 3*0=0, 3*1=3, 3*2=6, 3*3=9, etc etc. There is a calculator in this module that gives you examples of multiples. Try it out! The concept of factor is the opposite to that of a multiple. If some number A is a factor of a number B, that means that B is a multiple of A. For example, 2 is a factor of 6 because 6 is a multiple of 2 (6 is 2 multiplied by 3). There is a factorizing solver here that shows all factors of a number. This lesson has been accessed 33889 times.
