Multiple

Bookmark(0)

A multiple is the number you get when you multiple two integers. These are also known as multiplication tables. The multiples of 6 are 12, 18, 24… Keep in mind that multiples are simply answers that you get when you multiply by an integer. It means that 0, negative, positive and the number itself are all the multiples. So, multiples of 6 also include 0, -12, -18, -24 etc.

Now consider the following example

  • If 2 ≤ w≤ 100, and w is a multiple of 10 and 35, Find the w?
    (A) 1
    (B) 5
    (C) 35
    (D) 70
    (E) 350

In this example, choice B is for students who completely forget the concept of factors and multiples. Whereas if you are opting other than D, then you must did not read the statement carefully and ignored the limitations. Hence, answer D is correct.
