## 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.

## First 10 Multiples of 5

The first 10 multiples of 5 are as follows:

5×1=5 | 5×2=10 |

5×3=15 | 5×4=20 |

5×5=25 | 5×6=30 |

5×7=35 | 5×8=40 |

5×9=45 | 5×10=50 |

So we have:

The first 10 multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50. |

5×11=55 | 5×12=60 |

5×13=65 | 5×14=70 |

5×15=75 | 5×16=80 |

5×17=85 | 5×18=90 |

5×19=95 | 5×20=100 |

So we have:

The first 20 multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, and 100. |

## 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.
