Presentation Transcript

If a number divides exactly into another number, the second is a multiple of the first.

Example

3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18

Example

10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20

are the first six multiples of 3

are the set of multiples of 2 between 10 and 20 inclusive

From the set {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12}

Write down the multiples of

2

4

6

Example

Find the lowest common multiple of 12 and 15.

That is the smallest common multiple of the two numbers

Find the lowest common multiple of 9 and 12.

A factor is a number that will divide exactly into a given number

Example

List all the factors of

A prime number is a number that can be divided exactly by itself and one only.

In other words it has only two factors

Example

List the first 8 prime numbers.

When we want to express a number as a product of its prime factors we express the number as a multiplication of prime numbers

Example

Express 48 in terms of its prime factors

### Prime Factors

Example factors we express the number as a multiplication of prime numbers

Express each of the following as products of prime numbers

Highest common factor (HCF) factors we express the number as a multiplication of prime numbers

The highest common factor of two or more numbers is the greatest number which will divide exactly into each of them.

Example

Find the HCF of 4, 6 and 8

Example factors we express the number as a multiplication of prime numbers

Find the HCF of

6, 9 and 12

12 and 18
