# Examples on Multiples

Examples on multiples on different types of questions on multiples are discussed here step-by-step. Every number is a multiple of itself. Every number is a multiple of 1. Every multiple of a number is either greater than or equal to the number. Product of two or more numbers is a multiple of each of the numbers.

1. Write the first three multiples of 11.

Solution:

The first three multiples of 11 are:

11 x 1 = 11,

11 x 2 = 22,

11 x 3 = 33,

Thus, the first three multiples of 11 are 11, 22 and 33.

2. Write the first five multiples of 17.

Solution:

The first five multiples of 17 are:

17 x 1 = 17,

17 x 2 = 34,

17 x 3 = 51,

17 x 4 = 68,

17 x 5 = 85

Thus, the first five multiples of 17 are 17, 34, 51, 68 and 85.

3. Is 72 is a multiple of:

(i) 9

(ii) 6

Solution:

(i)

So, 72 = 8 × 9

Thus, 72 is a multiple of 9.

(ii)

So, 72 = 6 × 12

Thus, 72 is a multiple of 6.

4. Is 85 a multiple of 9?

Solution:

Thus, 9 is not a factor of 85.

So, 85 is not a multiple of 9.

5. Write the first five multiples of 21.

Solution:

The first five multiples of 21 are:

21 x 1 = 21,

21 x 2 = 42,

21 x 3 = 63,

21 x 4 = 84,

21 x 5 = 105

Thus, the first five multiples of 21 are 21, 42, 63, 84 and 105.

Students can practice these five examples on multiples which are discussed here step-by-step.
