# Can a prime number be a multiple of any other number exept itself?

You could say that a Prime number is also a multiple of 1. A good definition of prime number is: "a natural number with exactly two distinct factors". This definition explains why 1 is not a prime number.

By definition a prime number is divisible only by itself and 1, so it can't be a multiple of any other number.

Every number is both a factor and a multiple of itself. Every other factor is smaller than the number, every other multiple is larger than the number.

If he number has a multiple other than itself it is composite.

Yes as for example it can be a multiple of 1 because 1*3 = 3

The least (or smallest) multiple is not a term typically used in mathematics. The least multiple of a number would be that number multiplied by 1. In other words, it would be the number itself.

17 is a multiple of 1. 17 is a prime number and hence apart from itself and 1, there is no other number that can divide 17 properly

This number is equal to itself, and to no other number.This number is equal to itself, and to no other number.This number is equal to itself, and to no other number.This number is equal to itself, and to no other number.

Any number is a factor and a multiple of itself. Other factors are less than the number, other multiples are more. 5 is a factor of 10. 10 is a multiple of 5.

No number that is a multiple of 3, can be a prime number. A prime number must only be divisible by itself and 1. It cannot be divisible by any other number. Therefore if it is a multiple of 3, then it must be divisible by 3 and hence, not a prime number.

If one number is a multiple of the other, the number that is the multiple is the LCM.

7 is prime, so it's lowest common multiple with anything that isn't itself a multiple of 7 (in which case the LCM would just be the other number itself) is that number times seven (in this case, 175).

A composite number is a number that can be divided by multiple other integer numbers other then 1 and the number itself. For instance 4,567,278 can be divided by 2.

A prime number has no factors other than 1 and itself. Each multiple of fifteen includes 3, 5, and 15 among its factors.

Composite numbers are those numbers which are multiples of other numbers other than one and itself. Prime numbers are those numbers wich are not the multiples of other numbers other than one or tne number itself. In case of the number 306,we can say it is a composite number because it is the multiple of 2,3,6 etc which are other than 1 and the number itself that is 306.

A prime number can be multiplied by any other numbers because all whole numbers are the product of prime numbers.

Unless the other number is a multiple of 7, the LCM will be the product of the two. If the other number is a multiple of 7, the LCM will be the other number.

The least common multiple of 1 and any other number is the other number.

It would help to have that other number. If the other number is a multiple of 3, the LCM is that number. If it is not a multiple of 3, the LCM is 3 times that number.

I presume you are interested in the positive whole number multiples of 5 other than 5 itself (every number is a multiple of itself). That would be 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, and 55 (55 is not more than itself). Also, 0 is a multiple of every number, but it is not strictly positive.

Think of the definition of a prime number: It has no divisors other than itself and 1 so it cannot be a multiple of any other numbers.

A multiple of any number would be the product of that number and any other nonzero whole number. A multiple of 4 is 8. A multiple of 100 is 300.

If the other number is not a multiple of 5, the LCM is the product of 5 and the other number.
