What is a Multiple?Date: 12/4/95 at 21:31:23 From: Anonymous Subject: Multiplication What is the definition of a Multiple? Date: 3/17/96 at 22:13:27 From: Doctor Jodi Subject: Re: Multiplication Hi there! The question you sent us is a good one. If you're counting 5 10 15 20.... you're counting the MULTIPLES of 5 or 2 4 6 8 would be MULTIPLES of 2 A multiple of a number has that number as one of its factors. Does that make sense?
