 # 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 15 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, 315, 330, 345, 360, 375, 390, 405, 420, 435, 450, 465, 480, 495, 510, 525, 540, 555, 570, 585, 600, 615, 630, 645, 660, 675, 690, 705, 720, 735, …

All numbers which can be divided or the 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, 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 the 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 of 15  is 75.
