No. A number cannot be both a factor and a multiple of another number. A number can be multiple and factor of itself, but nothing else.

What is a multiple factor?

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.


When a number is both a factor and a multiple what is it called?

A prime number is both a factor of itself and also a multiple of itself.


What is the relationship between a factor and a multiple?

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


What number is a factor and also a multiple of 2?

2


Is a common factor a number that goes into another number without having any remainders?

No, that's just a factor. A common factor is when that factor is also a factor of another number.


Why are multiples of 2 and 4 not also a multiple of 8?

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.


What number is a factor a 48 and the number is also a multiple of 6 and the sum of the digits of this number equals 3?

Multiple of one number that are also multiples of another number?

common multiples


What number is both a factor and a multiple of 28?

28 is a factor of 28, as 28/28 = 1. 28 is also a multiple of 28, as 28*1 = 28.


What two digit number is a factor of 30 and a multiple of 4?

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.


What is the multiple of one number but is also multiples of another number called?

They are common multiples.


Why are the factors of a number also the divisors of the number?

Divisor is just another name for factor.


What number is a factor of 1000 but not of 10000 and also is a multiple of both 50 and 8?

It is impossible to be a factor of 1000, but not of 10000. All of the factors of 1000 are also factors of 10000.


What is the GCF of 94 and 47?

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.


What it means for one number to be a factor of another factor?

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.


Does a factor mean the same as a highest common multiple?

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.


Can the greatest common factor also be the least common multiple?

Only if you're comparing a number to itself.


What number is a factor of 36 and also a multiple of 3?

3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36


What is the least common multiple of 15 20 and 35?

Not sure what a comment factor might be. Also, the greatest common factor of a single number, such as 152035 is the number itself.


Does any number that has 10 as a factor also have 5 as a factor explain?

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.


What if your number is a factor of 20 It is also a factor of 30?

My number is a factor of 20. It is also a factor of 30.


What is the antonym of a factor?

I believe the opposite of a factor is a multiple. It could also be a non-factor.


Do any number that has 3 as a factor also has 9?

Any integer multiple of 9. For example 18, or 99.


What factor of 24 is also a multiple of 24?

The only number that fits those two requirements is 24 itself.


Is it possible to find a number that is divisble by 4 but not 2?

No. Any multiple of 4 is automatically also a multiple of 2. This is because 2 is, in turn, a factor of 4.
