Factors are the facts that multiply to get the selected number.
TIP: You can count all your factors to figure out different ways to ARRANGE a certain amount of items. (ex: How many ways can you arrange 24 pictures in a scrapbook?; Answer- 8 ways! 1 pic/24 pages; 2 pics/12 pages; 3 pics/8 pages; 4 pics/6 pages; 6 pics/4 pages; 8 pics/3 pages; 12 pics/ 2 pages; 24 pics/1 page)
Multiples are what the products are when you multiply a certain number. It's like skip counting.
Many problems will say: List the first 5 multiples of ____.
**NOTE: The first multiple is ALWAYS zero, then the number, and so on.
(ex: What are the first 5 multiples of 6? Answer: 0, 6, 12, 18, 24)
