a lower number time its self eqaul the number you had
If it's a whole-number "multiple" and the number itself is positive,then the multiple is always greater than the number itself.
This is easier than most, since 72 is 2*36. In such a case when one number is a multiple of the other, the LCM is the bigger number and the GCF is the lower number, so the answer is 72.■
Every number is both a factor and a multiple of itself. Every other factor is smaller than the number, every other multiple is larger than the number.
No it is not. To be a multiple of a certain number, the first criterion is that the number must be greater than or equal to the number it is a multiple of. Since 7 is smaller than 48, 7 cannot be a multiple of 48.
There is no such number. Since 4 more than that number would be a higher multiple. And 4 more than THAT number would be a higher multiple still. And so on.
Not necessarily. A number is also a multiple of itself.
Two is the least prime number that is lower than 203.
It is 30.
11997 One calculation. 12000 is 9 x 1333.33 recurring. The largest number as a multiple of 9 which is less than 12000 would be that number which is one decimal place lower than the above number. That is 1333.333.......n2. There would be an infinite number of decimal places before the 2 I leave the calculation as an exercise to the student
