Multiples of 15

The multiples of 15 are the numbers which are n-times of 15, where n = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and so on. So, basically multiples are n-times of any number, where n is the list of natural numbers. Thus, number 5 has multiples in the form of 15n, such that:

  • 15 x 1 = 15
  • 15 x 2 = 30
  • 15 x 3 = 45
  • 15 x 4 = 60

and so on.

Here is the list of all multiples:

15,30,45,60,75,90,105,120,135,150,
165,180,195,210,225,240,255,270,285,300,

615,630,645,660,675,690,705,720,735, …

All numbers which can be divided or is a product of 15 is a multiple of 15. The multiples are different from the factors of 15. The factors are the numbers which when multiplied in a pair gives the original number such as 3 x 5 = 15, so here 3 and 5 are not the multiples but the factors. Multiples do not produce the original number instead they are divisible from the original number, for example, 45 ÷ 15 = 3.

What is a multiple of 15?

Any number that can be denoted in the form 15n where n is an integer is a multiple of 15. 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.

For example, 60, 45, 150 and 120 are all multiples of 15 for the following reasons

60 = 15 x 4
45 = 15 x 3
150 = 15 x 10
120 = 15 x 8

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

What is the fifth multiple of 15?

The fifth multiple of 15 could be found by multiplying 15 by 5, such that;

15 x 5 = 75

Thus, the fifth multiple is 75 for number 15.
