## Definition

A multiple is the product of a number and a whole number.

## Description

Multiples are numbers obtained by multiplying a given number by a whole number. For example, the multiples of 3 include 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on. Understanding multiples is crucial for solving problems involving patterns, sequences, and divisibility. They are used in various real-world applications, such as scheduling, where events occur at regular intervals, and in computer science for data organization. Teaching students about multiples helps them identify patterns in numbers and develop their mathematical reasoning skills.

**Teacher script**: "Multiples are like skip counting. If you count by 2s, you get 2, 4, 6, 8. These are multiples of 2."
