The content provides an in-depth exploration of the concept of multiples, distinguishing them from factors, and elaborates on the relationships between multiples of a number through addition, subtraction, and multiplication.
  • Multiples and factors are distinct concepts; factors are numbers that divide into another number without leaving a remainder, while multiples are the product of a number and any integer.
  • An infinite number of multiples can be generated by continuously multiplying a number by integers.
  • The sum, difference, or product of multiples of a number will also be a multiple of that number, but this rule does not apply to division.
  • Understanding the relationship between multiples and factors is crucial for solving GRE quantitative problems, especially those involving divisibility and multiplication.
  • Practical examples and problems are provided to apply the concept of multiples in the context of GRE prep, highlighting the importance of recognizing patterns and relationships between numbers.
