## What are Multiples of 16?

A number is called a multiple of 16 if it is completely divisible by 16 with the remainder zero.

For example, 16 divides 32 completely, so by the definition 32 is a multiple of 16. Similarly, 16, 32, 48, 64, 160, 1600, etc. are all examples of multiples of 16 as they are completely divisible 16.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 16 can be written as 16n for some integer n. So the set of multiples of 16 is given by

{16n: n is an integer}
