Determining common multiples

Determining common multiples

Been called to the office multiple times at school? I sure hope not! In this section, we will be determining the multiples of numbers. A multiple is a product of any quantity and an integer. We will use division to test if one number is a multiple of another number. The first multiple of a number is found by multiplying the number itself by 1. The second multiple of a number is found by multiplying the number itself by 2 and so on.
