# Multiples of 5

The **multiples of 5** are the numbers that are generated when 5 is multiplied by any natural number. That means any number that can be expressed in the form of 5n where n is an integer is a multiple of 5. As we know, if two values, p and q, are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some integer n.

Some of the multiples of 5 include the following.

**5, 10, 15, 20, 25, ….., 50, 55, 60,….., 120, 125,…..**

All numbers which can be divided or are a product of 5 are multiples of 5. Although the factors of 5 are the numbers that, when multiplied together, gives the original number. Hence, there is a difference between factors and multiples.

## What are the multiples of 5?

As per the definition given above, the multiple of 5 is a number obtained by multiplying some integer with 5.

For example, 10, 20, 25 and 55 are all multiples of 5 for the following reasons.

5 × 2 = 10 | 5 multiplied by 2 to get 10 |

5 × 4 = 20 | 5 multiplied by 4 to get 20 |

5 × 5 = 25 | 5 multiplied by 5 to get 25 |

5 × 11 = 55 | 5 multiplied by 11 to get 55 |

**How to find multiples of 5?**

We can also obtain multiples through the repeated addition of a number as many times as required. For example, the first five multiples of 5 can be written as:

5 × 1 = 5

5 × 2 = 10 or 5 + 5 = 8 {here 5 is added for twice}

5 × 3 = 15 or 5 + 5 + 5 = 15 {here 5 is added for thrice}

5 × 4 = 20 or 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20

5 × 5 = 25 or 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25

In the same way, we write several multiples of the given numbers.

If we have to verify that any number is a multiple of 5 or not, then we need to divide that number by 5. If there is any remainder left, then that number is not a multiple of 5. Let us see some examples here:

- 10 ÷ 5 = 2 (Multiple)
- 12 ÷ 5 = 2 and remainder is 2 (Not a multiple)
- 45 ÷ 5 = 9 (Multiple)
- 54 ÷ 5 = 10 and remainder is 4 (Not a multiple)
