A factor is any number that divides any other number evenly while a multiple is a number that can be multiplied by another number to give products that are in the same set in the multiplication table. For example, factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6 while multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24, and 36 and so on.
