# Finding factors and multiples

Sal uses divisibility rules to determine if numbers are factors of 154 and then finds multiples of 14. Created by Sal Khan.

• what is a multiple? can someone please clarify the difference between a multiple and a factor?
• Multiples and factors are opposite terms.
Multiplies of a number are the numbers that appear when you create a multiplication table for a number. For example:
Multiples of 5 are: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, etc.
Each multiple is created by multiply 5 times some other number.

Factors are the numbers used to create a multiple.
Factors of 15 are:
3 and 5 because 3 x 5 = 15
1 and 15 because 1 x 15 = 15

Hope this helps.
• do you guys like prodigy? if do upvote! i might make a prodigy group!!
• yes sir
• What is a factor and what is a multiple?
• factor- a number or quantity that when multiplied with another produces a given number or expression.
multiple-a number that can be divided by another number without a remainder.
• is there an easier way to do this?
• There are a lot of tricks you can use, as Sal does in most of these videos. If you search up divisibility tricks you might find some!
• i have a hard time knowing the difference between factors and multiples.
• Factor is a whole number which you can divide or get by dividing a certain number with while a multiple is a whole number you can get by multiplying a certain number.

For example: Let's have a certain number 18.
It's factors are:
1, 2, 3, 9, 18

While it's multiples are:
18, 36, 54, 72, 90 ... and so on.

Hope this helps.
• I still do not understand factors can someone pls explain?
• A factor is one of the numbers in division - the answer is called a "product" while the numbers being multiplied together are called "factors."
• how do I know if a number is divisible by 7?
• To check if a number is evenly divisible b 7: Take the last digit of a number, double it (x2). Then subtract the result from the rest of the number. I f the resulting number is evenly divisible by 7 so is the original number OR SIMPLY DIVIDE IT AND SEE IN SHORT
