The concept of multiples is fairly straightforward to grasp. It is basically adding the same number many times to get the answer you want. For example, Sam packs 36 candy lollypops in a packet every day. How many candy lollypops did he pack in the month of November? To know this we need to add the number 36 thirty times or simply find 36 x 30.

To understand the concept of finding multiples, let us take a few more examples.

**Important Notes**

A number can have infinite multiples.36 is an even number, so its multiples will also be even.

**Challenging Questions**

If a number X is a multiple of 4, then is it true that it will be a multiple of 36 also? Why? If 36 = 22 × 32 and there is another number A = 32 × 23, then is A a multiple of 36 or is it a factor of 36?

## Multiples of 36 Solved Examples

**Example 1: **On Monday, Nicole read thrice the number of pages that she read the previous day, which was Sunday. If she read 12 pages on Sunday, how many pages did she read on Monday?

Number of pages read on Monday = 3 × Number of pages read on Sunday

3 × 12 = 36

**Example 2: **Myra has 4 notes of $100 and Jack has 36 notes of $20. Who has more money?

**Solution**:

If we know the multiples of 4 and 36, we can find the amount of money that each of them has.

Amount that Myra has 4 × 100 = $400

Amount that Jack has 36 × 20= $720

As 720 > 400, we can say that Jack has more money than Myra.
