Is it true or falues a unit mush be divided by multiples of ten when converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit?

False - when converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit there will be more of them so you must multiply. What you multiply by depends upon the units, for example converting feet to inches you multiply by 12; converting pounds to ounces you multiply by 16. It is only with the metric system of units where you multiply by a power of 10 to convert a large unit to a smaller unit, for example 2.5 kg is 2500 g (multiply by 1000 or 103).

What numbers are smaller factors or multiples?

It depends on what they are compared to. In general, factors will be smaller than the number they are compared to, and multiples will be larger. Overall, factors tend to be smaller than multiples, but 20 is a factor of 40 and 10 is a multiple of 5, so there are exceptions.
