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.
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).
Take a look at the multiples of different numbers:
