(b) 15

(c) 21

(d) 27

(e) 12

(f) 20

(g) 18

(h) 23

(i) 36

**Solution:**

**(a)** 24

24 = 1 × 24

24 = 2 × 12

24 = 3 × 8

24 = 4 × 6

24 = 6 × 4

Stop here since 4 and 6 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24

**(b)** 15

15 = 1 × 15

15 = 3 × 5

15 = 5 × 3

Stop here since 3 and 5 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 15 are 1, 3, 5 and 15

**(c)** 21

21 = 1 × 21

21 = 3 × 7

21 = 7 × 3

Stop here since 3 and 7 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 21 are 1, 3, 7 and 21

**(d)** 27

27 = 1 × 27

27 = 3 × 9

27 = 9 × 3

Stop here since 3 and 9 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 27 are 1, 3, 9 and 27

**(e)** 12

12 = 1 × 12

12 = 2 × 6

12 = 3 × 4

12 = 4 × 3

Stop here since 3 and 4 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12

**(f)** 20

20 = 1 × 20

20 = 2 × 10

20 = 4 × 5

20 = 5 × 4

Stop here since 4 and 5 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5 10 and 20

**(g)** 18

18 = 1 × 18

18 = 2 × 9

18 = 3 × 6

18 = 6 × 3

Stop here since 3 and 6 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 18

**(h)** 23

23 = 1 × 23

23 = 23 × 1

Since 1 and 23 have occurred earlier

Hence, the factors of 23 are 1 and 23

**(i)** 36

36 = 1 × 36

36 = 2 × 18

36 = 3 × 12

36 = 4 × 9

36 = 6 × 6

Stop here, since both the factors (6) are same.

Thus, the factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36

**Question 2:** Write first five multiples of:**(a)** 5 **(b)** 8 **(c)** 9

**Solution:****(a)** The required multiples are:

5 × 1 = 5

5 × 2 = 10

5 × 3 = 15

5 × 4 = 20

5 × 5 = 25

Hence, the first five multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25

**(b)** The required multiples are:

8 × 1 = 8

8 × 2 = 16

8 × 3 = 24

8 × 4 = 32

8 × 5 = 40

Hence, the first five multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32 and 40

**(c)** The required multiples are:

9 × 1 = 9

9 × 2 = 18

9 × 3 = 27

9 × 4 = 36

9 × 5 = 45

Hence, the first five multiples of 9 are 9, 18, 27, 36 and 45

**Question 3:** Match the items in column 1 with the items in column 2.

**Column 1 Column 2****(i)** 35 **(a)** Multiple of 8**(ii)** 15 **(b)** Multiple of 7**(iii)** 16 **(c)** Multiple of 70**(iv)** 20 **(d)** Factor of 30**(v)** 25 **(e)** Factor of 50

**(f)** Factor of 20

**Solution:**

(i) ↔ (b) [∵ 7 × 5 = 35]

(ii) ↔ (d) [∵ 15 × 2 = 30]

(iii) ↔ (a) [∵ 8 × 2 = 16]

(iv) ↔ (f) [∵ 20 × 1 = 20]

(v) ↔ (e) [∵ 25 × 2 = 50]

**Question 4:** Find all the multiples of 9 up to 100.

**Solution:**

9 × 1 = 9

9 × 2 = 18

9 × 3 = 27

9 × 4 = 36

9 × 5 = 45

9 × 6 = 54

9 × 7 = 63

9 × 8 = 72

9 × 9 = 81

9 × 10 = 90

9 × 11 = 99

∴ All the multiples of 9 up to 100 are 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90 and 99
