What are Multiples of 5?

A number is called a multiple of 5 if it is completely divisible by 5 with the remainder zero.

For example, 5 divides 10 completely, so by the definition 10 is a multiple of 5. Similarly, 5, 10, 15, 20, 50, 500, etc. are all examples of multiples of 5 as they are completely divisible 5.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 5 can be written as 5n for some integer n. So the set of multiples of 5 is given by

{5n: n is an integer}.

Note that the above set is the set of multiples of 5 in set builder form.

Properties of Multiples of 5

• Multiples of 5 always end with either 0 or 5.

• If a number ends with 0 or 5 then the number is a multiple of 5.

• If a number ends with either 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 or 9, then the number cannot be a multiple of 5.
