 # Multiples of 5

The multiples of 5 are the numbers which are generated when 5 is multiplied by any natural number. It can be represented as 5n, where n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …and so on. The list of all the multiples of the number 5 is given here in the below:

 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,60,65,70,75,80,85,90,…..

All numbers which can be divided or is a product of 5 is a multiple of 5. But the factors of 5 are the numbers which when multiplied together gives the original number. Hence there is a difference between factors and multiples.

## What are the multiples of 5?

Any number that can be denoted in the form 5n where n is any natural number is a multiple of 5. So if two values p and q are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some natural number ‘n’.

For example, 10, 20, 25 and 55 are all multiples of 5 for the following reasons

 25 = 5 x 5 30 = 5 x 6 20 = 5 x 4 40 = 5 x 8

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

If we have to check that any number is a multiple of 5 or not, then we need to divide that number by 5. If there is any remainder left then that number is not multiple. Let us see some examples here:

• 10 ÷ 5 = 2 (Multiple)
• 12 ÷ 5 = 2 and remainder is 2   (Not a multiple)
• 45 ÷ 5 = 9 (Multiple)
• 54 ÷ 5 = 10 and remainder is 4 (Not a multiple)

### How to find multiples of 5?

To find the multiples of 5, we have to multiply 5 with the natural numbers. Suppose if we have to find the fifth multiple of 5, then;

5 x 5 = 25, is the fifth multiple.

11th multiple of 5 is, 5 x 11 =55

15th multiple of 5 is, 15 x 5 = 75
