## Frequently asked questions about multiples and factors

Still have questions about multiples and factors? It’s okay, you’re not alone! Learn more about multiples and factors when you find the answers to these common questions asked by students like you.

Multiples are numbers you get when you multiply a number by another number. For example, the multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on. You can keep adding 3 to get more multiples! So add 3 to 12, you get 15, add 3 to 15, you get 18, and on and on.

Factors are numbers that divide evenly into another number without leaving any remainder. For example, the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. When you divide 12 by these numbers, there won’t be any leftovers!

To find the multiples of a number, start with that number and keep adding it to itself. For example, if you want to find the multiples of 4, you start with 4 and add 4 to get 8, then add 4 again to get 12, and so on. You can keep going as far as you want!

To find the factors of a number, you need to think about what numbers you can divide it by without having any leftovers. Start with 1 and try dividing the number. If it divides evenly, then it’s a factor! Keep trying larger numbers until you reach the number itself. For example, to find the factors of 24, you would try dividing by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24.
