When you multiply a Number 1 with another Number 2, you get a multiple.

Suppose you have number 11 in your mind and you have been asked to find multiples of number 11.

–>It means that you have to find number which get divided by 11 giving 0 remainder.

–> It also means that the multiple comes in the multiplication table of 11

**For Example:**

I**n order to get multiple of 11, just write multiplication table of number 11**. Look at the example given below:

**Let us take another example of Multiple**

**Find some of the multiples of number 7.**

In order to get the multiple of 7, the easiest way is to write the multiplication table of number 7

You can see from above that the numbers **7, 14, 21, 28 and 35 are multiples of number 7**

**Finding whether 84 is the multiple of 7 or not?**

**1 ^{st} method** – Division method (for bigger numbers)

**Divide 84 by 7, if the remainder is 0, then yes, it is multiple of 7**

**2 ^{nd} method – **Table method (for smaller numbers otherwise is a lengthy process) Write table of 7, till you get 84 or closest greater number

**IMPORTANT POINTS **

**1. Multiples of a number are greater than or equal to that number.**

Example – Multiples of 6 are

6 x 1 = 6

6 x 2 = 12

6 x 3 = 18

6 x 4 = 24

6 x 5 = 30 and so on

**2. The number of multiples of a number are infinite (unlimited)**

You can starting counting the table as long as you wish.
