The first eight multiples of the number six are 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48. Multiples are obtained by multiplying a number by integers, so the multiples of 6 can be obtained by multiplying 6 by integers starting from 1.

Factors are directly related to multiples. A factor of a number refers to any number that can be evenly divided into the original number. A multiple is the result of multiplying a number with an integer. The original number will always be a factor of the resulting multiple. For example, 6 evenly goes into 12 and 18, which means that 6 is a factor of 12 and 18.
