FINDING FACT & PROPERTIES OF MULTIPLES

**FACT & PROPERTIES OF MULTIPLES -**

**Understand the following:**

**6 x
1
= 6, **

**6 x
2
=
12, **

**6 x
3
= 18, **

**6 x
4
= 24, **

**6 x
5
= 30,**

**Here, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 are all multiples of 6.**

**When we multiply
two given numbers, their product is a multiple of each of the numbers. 6 x 5 = 30**

**∴ 30 is a multiple of 6. Also, 30 is a multiple
of 5. Or, multiples means using the TABLES**

**Properties Of Multiple -**

**
**

**1. Every number is a multiple
of 1.
**

**1 x 15 = 15
**

**Also, every number is a multiple of itself.**

**2. 0 is a multiple of every number.
**

**25 x 0 = 0**

**3. Every multiple is either greater
than or equal to the number.
**

**Multiples of 12 are 12, 24, 36, 48, ……….. .
**

**The smallest
is 12 (the number itself) and the rest are greater than 12 (the number).**

**4. Multiples of number are infinite (endless)
**

**Multiples of 20 are 20, 40, 60, 80, ……….. .
**

**
Example.1) Find the multiples of 12 which are greater
than 40 but less than 100. **

**Ans.)**

**12 X 4 = 48
**

**12 X 5 = 60
**

**12 X 6 = 72
**

**12 X 7 = 84
**

**12 X 8 = 96
**

**Ans: The multiples of 12 which
are greater than 40 but less than 100 are 48, 60, 72, 84 and 96. (Ans.)**

Example.2) Find the 5th
multiple of 12.

**Ans.) **

**12 X 5 = 60**

**Ans: The fifth multiple of 12 is 60. (Ans.)**
