Definition of Multiples of 15
Multiples of 15 are all the numbers that when divided by 15 equal an integer. Each of the multiples of 15 are called a multiple. A multiple of 15 is created by multiplying 15 by an integer.
Therefore, to create a list of multiples of 15, you start with 1 multiplied by 15, then 2 multiplied by 15, then 3 multiplied by 15, and so on for as long as you want. Thus, the list of the first five multiples of 15 is 15, 30, 45, 60, and 75. To see a larger list of multiples of 15, see the printable image of Multiples of 15 further down on this page. We also have a category where you can choose any nth multiple of 15.
