A factor is a number or algebraic expression by which another is exactly divisible. A multiple is a number that can be divided by another number without a remainder. A multiple factor is an oxymoron.
A prime number is both a factor of itself and also a multiple of itself.
A factor of any number is a multiple of that number as for example 3 is a factor of 24 and it is also a multiple of 3 because 3*8 = 24
No, that's just a factor. A common factor is when that factor is also a factor of another number.
Because 2 is a factor of 4. If a number is a multiple of four, when you add that it is a multiple of 2 there is no extra information, no additional factor.
28 is a factor of 28, as 28/28 = 1. 28 is also a multiple of 28, as 28*1 = 28.
There is no such number. If a multiple of 4 is a factor of 30, then 4 must also be a factor of 30, but 4 is not a factor of 30 (the factors of 30 are: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30), thus no such number exists.
They are common multiples.
Divisor is just another name for factor.
It is impossible to be a factor of 1000, but not of 10000. All of the factors of 1000 are also factors of 10000.
47 is a factor of 94: 47*2 = 94.Suppose you are looking for the GCF of two numbers and that that one of the numbers is a multiple of the other. Then their GCF is always smaller of the two number.Every number is a factor of itself, so the smaller number is a factor of itself. Also, if the bigger number is its multiple, then it must also be a factor of the bigger number. So it is a common factor.Now, any number that is bigger than the smaller of the two numbers cannot be its factor. So, the common factor found earlier must be the greatest such number.
A factor is a number that can be multiplied with another factor to create a product. 4 x 5 = 20 Four and five are factors of 20. Since 2 x 2 = 4, 2 is a factor of 4 and also a factor of a factor.
No.When talking about factors and multiples the numbers are integers (whole numbers).A factor of a number means that the number is a multiple of the factor; the factor divides into the number without any remainder.There is no such thing as a Highest Common Multiple - it is always possible to find a higher common multiple (by adding the Lowest Common Multiple to the supposed highest common multiple).There is a Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) which is the smallest number which is a multiple of two or more numbers. It is also called the Least Common Multiple, or when working with fractions it can be referred to as the Least Common Denominator as the two or more numbers are the denominators of the fractions and equivalent fractions are being sought to be able to do an addition or subtraction.There is a Highest Common Factor (HCF) which is the largest number which divides into each of the two or more numbers without remainder. It is also called the Greatest Common Factor. If the numbers are relatively prime (or co-prime) their HCF is 1.
Only if you're comparing a number to itself.
3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36
Not sure what a comment factor might be. Also, the greatest common factor of a single number, such as 152035 is the number itself.
Any number that has another number for a factor has that number's factors as factors as well. Since 5 is a factor of 10, all multiples of 10 have 5 as a factor.
My number is a factor of 20. It is also a factor of 30.
I believe the opposite of a factor is a multiple. It could also be a non-factor.
Any integer multiple of 9. For example 18, or 99.
The only number that fits those two requirements is 24 itself.
No. Any multiple of 4 is automatically also a multiple of 2. This is because 2 is, in turn, a factor of 4.
