No. 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.

Factors go into numbers, numbers go into multiples.

Factors go into numbers, numbers go into multiples.

Factors are the numbers that can multiply to make up a given number. 1, 2, 5 and 10 are the factors of 10 because 10 x 1 and 5 x 2 equal 10.

Multiples are created by multiplying a given number by successive counting numbers.

10 x 1= 10

10 x 2 = 20

10 x 3 = 30

10, 20 and 30 are multiples of 10

Notice that 10 is both a factor and a multiple of itself.
