**Factors-the multiplication facts that give you the value you are looking for. Every number has 1 and itself as a factor. **

Example 1:The factors of 10, so 1 and 10

2 and 5

The factors of 10 are 1,2,5, and 10

Example 2: Factors of 25- 1 and 25

5 and 5, but you only use 5 once

The factors of 25 are 1,5,25

**Multiples- you need to multiply the number as many times as the question asks**

Example 1:What are the first 4 multiples of 2

2x1=2

2x2=4

2x3=6

2x4=8

The first four multiples of 2 are 2, 4, 6, and 8

Example 2: What are the first 6 multiples of 6?

6x1=6

6x2=12

6x3=18

6x4=24

6x5=30

6x6=36

the first 6 multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 26
