1845

• B.

3907

• C.

2836

• D.

1909

C. 2836
Explanation
2836 is the only number in the given options that is a multiple of 2. The other three numbers, 1845, 3907, and 1909, are not divisible by 2.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Which number is a multiple of 9?

• A.

23,975

• B.

23,835

• C.

73,417

• D.

18,756

D. 18,756
Explanation
18,756 is a multiple of 9 because the sum of its digits is divisible by 9. In this case, 1+8+7+5+6 = 27, and 27 is divisible by 9.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### Which pair of numbers is a factor pair for 28?

• A.

1 and 14

• B.

2 and 14

• C.

3 and 9

• D.

2 and 26

A. 1 and 14
Explanation
The pair of numbers 1 and 14 is a factor pair for 28 because both numbers can divide evenly into 28 without leaving a remainder. When 1 is multiplied by 28, the result is 28, and when 14 is multiplied by 2, the result is also 28. Therefore, 1 and 14 are both factors of 28.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Which number is a prime number?

• A.

21

• B.

36

• C.

33

• D.

47

D. 47
Explanation
A prime number is a number that is only divisible by 1 and itself. In this case, only 47 fits this criteria as it is not divisible by any other number. Therefore, 47 is the prime number in the given options.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Which number is not a multiple of 3?

• A.

2387

• B.

1986

• C.

1299

• D.

7764

A. 2387
Explanation
A number is a multiple of 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 3. In the given options, the sum of the digits of 2387 is 20, which is not divisible by 3. Therefore, 2387 is not a multiple of 3.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Which number is composite?

• A.

23

• B.

87

• C.

71

• D.

95

B. 87
Explanation
A composite number is a positive integer that has at least one divisor other than 1 and itself. In this case, all the given numbers are prime except for 87. Therefore, 87 is the correct answer as it can be divided evenly by numbers other than 1 and itself, such as 3 and 29.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Which rule is correct?

• A.

3: Look at the last digit and it must be a multiple of 3.

• B.

4: Add the numbers and it must be a multiple of 4.

• C.

6: The rules of 2 and 3 must apply.

• D.

2: The last digit must be a 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.

C. 6: The rules of 2 and 3 must apply.
Explanation
The correct answer is 6: The rules of 2 and 3 must apply. This rule is correct because it combines the rules of both 2 and 3. The rule of 2 states that the last digit must be 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9, while the rule of 3 states that the last digit must be a multiple of 3. By combining these two rules, the rule of 6 is formed, which requires the last digit to satisfy both conditions.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Select the correct statement.

• A.

6 is not a factor of 42.

• B.

9 is not a factor of 45.

• C.

5 is a factor of 18.

• D.

7 is not a factor of 15.

D. 7 is not a factor of 15.
Explanation
The statement "7 is not a factor of 15" is correct because when we divide 15 by 7, we get a remainder of 1. This means that 7 does not evenly divide into 15, making it not a factor.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### List all the factors of 20.

• A.

1, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 20.

• B.

1, 2, 5, 6, 10, and 20.

• C.

1, 2, 4, 5, 10 and 20

• D.

1, 2, 4, 9, 10 and 20

C. 1, 2, 4, 5, 10 and 20
Explanation
The factors of a number are the numbers that can divide evenly into that number without leaving a remainder. In this case, the factors of 20 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, and 20. These numbers can all divide evenly into 20, with no remainder.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Which number is not a factor of 30?

• A.

10

• B.

20

• C.

30

• D.

15

B. 20
Explanation
The number 20 is not a factor of 30 because a factor of a number is a number that divides evenly into that number without leaving a remainder. In this case, 20 does not divide evenly into 30 as 30 divided by 20 equals 1 remainder 10. Therefore, 20 is not a factor of 30.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Which number is a multiple of 5?

• A.

3498

• B.

1499

• C.

2784

• D.

7460

D. 7460
Explanation
7460 is the only number in the given options that is divisible by 5. It ends with a 0, which means it is divisible by 10, and since 10 is a multiple of 5, 7460 is also a multiple of 5.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Which number is prime?

• A.

53

• B.

45

• C.

98

• D.

64

A. 53
Explanation
The number 53 is prime because it is only divisible by 1 and itself. It does not have any other factors. In contrast, the numbers 45, 98, and 64 are not prime because they have multiple factors other than 1 and themselves.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Which number is not a multiple of 10?

2560

• B.

7545

• C.

4900

• D.

2860

B. 7545
Explanation
The number 7545 is not a multiple of 10 because it does not end with a zero.

Rate this question:

• 14.

### Which number is composite?

• A.

71

• B.

93

• C.

37

• D.

83

B. 93
Explanation
The number 93 is composite because it has factors other than 1 and itself. It can be divided evenly by 3 and 31, in addition to 1 and 93.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### Which list shows all the factors of 40?

• A.

10, 20, 30, and 40

• B.

1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40

• C.

40, 80, 120, 160, ...

• D.

1, 4, 5, 8, 20, 40

B. 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40
Explanation
The factors of a number are the numbers that can divide evenly into that number. In this case, the number is 40. To find the factors of 40, we need to determine which numbers can divide evenly into 40 without leaving a remainder. The numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, and 40 can all divide evenly into 40, so they are all factors of 40.

Rate this question:

• 16.

### Which rule is not correct?

• A.

6: The number must be divisible by both 2 and 3.

• B.

10: The number must end with a 0 or 5.

• C.

2: The last number must be even.

• D.

4: The last 2 digits must be a multiple of 4.

B. 10: The number must end with a 0 or 5.
Explanation
The rule that states "The number must end with a 0 or 5" is not correct because it is not necessary for a number to end with 0 or 5 in order to satisfy any mathematical property or divisibility rule.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### Which pair of numbers is a factor pair of 50?

• A.

1 and 25

• B.

1273

• C.

8745

• D.

3449
