Multiples of 14 Solved Examples

Example 1: Flora loves gardening. She plants 14 plants in the first row, 14 more plants in the next row, 14 plants in the third row, and so on. How many plants did she plant in the eighth row?
Solution:
The number of plants in every n^{th} row is the n^{th} multiple of 14.
Thus, the number of plants in the 8^{th} row is the 8^{th} multiple of 14.
14 x 8 = 112
Thus, Flora planted 112 plants in the eighth row.

Example 2: Today is Cherry's birthday. She wants to distribute two candies each to her friends. If she has 14 friends in her school, how many candies would she need for distribution?
Solution:
The number of candies that Cherry wants to distribute to each friend = 2
Number of friends Cherry has = 14
Thus, number of candies she will need = 14 × 2 = 28
