# Multiples

Multiples of a number is discussed here.

**What are multiples?**

*‘The
product obtained on multiplying two or more whole numbers is called a
multiple of that number or the numbers being multiplied.’ *

We know about the whole numbers: ‘the numbers starting from 0 and having the pattern 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, up to infinity, are called * whole numbers*.

The whole numbers minus 0 are the ** natural numbers**.

*All the natural numbers are multiples of 1.*

There is no end to multiples of any number. The first ten multiples of the numbers starting from 1 to 10 are given here.

**First ten Multiples of the Numbers**

In the above table we can observe the first ten multiples of the numbers starting from 1 to 10.

A multiple is the product of a number and any other number.

**Understanding Multiples**

1. The first multiple of a number is the number itself.

2. Every number is a multiple of 1.

3. 0 is a multiple of every number.

4. Multiples of a number are infinite (you can carry on writing them).

Multiples are really the products of the tables that you learn.

Sometimes, you learn the multiples till the 10

^{th} place or the 12

^{th} place of every number table but multiples are really infinite.

**Take a look at the multiples of different numbers:**

Common Multiple

Take a look at the multiples of 2, 3, 4, till the 10

^{th} place.

Multiples of 2 are in yellow; 3 are in orange; 4 are in light green.

When a number is multiple of 2 or more numbers it is called a common multiple.

Common multiples of 2 and 3 are 6, 12, 18 till the 10

^{th} place.

Common multiple of 2, 3 and 4 till the 10

^{th} place is → 12.
