The factors of a number are all the integers that can be multiplied together to produce that number. For example, 1, 2, 3 and 6 are all factors of 6. Multiples are all the numbers of which a given number is a factor.
To find both the least common multiple and greatest common factor, find the prime factorizations of the numbers. Then put them into a grid and compare and contrast them.
The multiples of 48 are 48, 96, 144, 192, 240, 288, 336, 384, 432, 480 and so on. According to MathWorld, the multiple of any number is that number times another integer.
To find the greatest common factor of two or more integers, the common prime factors of each number are multiplied together. The result is the greatest common factor of those two or more integers. If there are no common ...
The only difference between the set of positive integers and the set of nonnegative integers is the inclusion of zero in the set of nonnegative integers. Zero is neither a positive number nor a negative number. It is con...
To order a given list of integers on the number line, students should start from the right side of the number line and move towards the left of it when they place each of the given integers on this line. The number line ...
The prime factors of 56 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 7. Prime factors of an original number are prime numbers that — when multiplied together — give back the original number. Finding the prime factors of a number is called prime fact...
