A **multiple** of a number is the
product of that whole number and another whole number. For example, 16
is a multiple of 2 because 2 times another whole number (8) equals 16.
Sixteen is also a multiple of 1, 4, 8, and 16.

1. I am a number. I
am a multiple of 7. I am also a multiple of 5. (That means I am a **common
multiple** of 7 and 5.) I am not 35. I am less than 100. What
number am I?

2. I am a
number. I am a common multiple of 4, 5, 6, and 7. I am less than 10.
What number am I?

3. I am a
number. I am the smallest common multiple of 3 and 4, not counting
zero. (That’s called the **least common multiple**.)
What number am I?

4. I am a
number. I am the least common multiple of 3, 5, and 8. What number am I?

5. I am a
number. I am half as much as the least common multiple of 4 and 8. What
number am I?
