 # Multiples of 12

Any number that can be denoted in the form 12n where n is an integer is a multiple of 12. A multiple is a number which can be divided by another number at a certain number of times without any remainder left. So if two values p and q are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some integer n. Always remember there is a difference between factors and multiples, which you can learn here.

Some of the multiples of 12 are:

 12 36 120 60 144

All numbers which can be divided or is a product of 12 is a multiple of 12. The multiples are also called factors and it depends on their use in the equation too.

For example, 10, 36, 120 and 60are all multiples of 12 for the following reasons

 12 = 12 x 1 36 = 12 x 3 120 = 12 x 10 60 = 12 x 5

These values are called as multiples as these values are obtained by adding or subtracting original value many times.

### What is a multiple and factor of 12?

As we already discussed, multiples are the n-times of any given number. But factors are the numbers which when multiplied together produces the original number.

The multiples of any number could get extended to any number of times but the factors are fixed for any numbers.

The multiples of 12 are 12, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, and so on. The factors of 12 are 1,2,3,4,6 and 12.
