In the previous chapter, we have learned about prime and composite numbers, multiples, factors, etc. In this chapter, we will learn some new concepts and properties related to them.
Factors and Multiples:
The exact divisor of any number is a Factor of that number. For example each number 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 is a factor of 18 and none of the numbers 5, 4, 7, 8 is a factor of 18.
A multiple of any number is obtained by multiplying that number by any natural number.
For example 2, 4, 6, 8, . . . . . are multiples of 2.
Properties of Factors and Multiples:
- Every number is a factor of 1 and itself.
- Every number is a multiple of itself.
- Factors of any given numbers are finite.
- The number of multiples of any given number is infinite.
