The properties of multiples are discussed stepbystep according to its property.
Property (1):
Every number is a multiple of 1.
As: 7 x 1 = 7,
9 x 1 = 9,
15 x 1 = 15,
40 x 1 = 40
Property (2):
Every number is the multiple of itself.
As: 1 x 7 = 7,
1 x 21 = 21,
1 x 105 = 105,
1 x 212 = 212
Property (3):
Zero (0) is a multiple of every number.
As: 0 x 9 = 0,
0 x 11 = 0,
0 x 57 = 0,
0 x 275 = 0
Property (4):
Every multiple except zero is either equal to or greater than any of its factors.
As, multiple of 7 = 7, 14, 28, 35, 77, …………., etc.
Property (5):
The product of two or more factors is the multiple of each factor.
As: 3 x 7 = 21,
So, 21 is the multiple of both 3 and 7.
30 = 2 x 3 x 5,
So, 30 is the multiple of 2, 3 and 5.
Property (6):
There is no end to multiples of a number.
As: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, …………….., 100, 105, 110, …………………., are the multiples of 5.
These are the properties of multiples.
