Multiples of 15 Solved Examples

Example 1: Ana deposits $15 in her piggy bank every month. How much will she have deposited in 3 years?
Solution:
Amount deposited by Ana in the first month = $ 15.
In the subsequent months, the amount deposited = multiples of 15.
In a year, we have 12 months and the amount deposited in 3 years = 36 × $15 = $540
Therefore, total deposit in 3 years = $540 
Example 2: Mike's practice sessions last for 12 hours a day and he has 15 days of training, how many hours would he have attended at the end of his training?
Solution:
Practice session in hours × days of training = total number of hours
12 × 15 = 180
Thus he would have attended 180 hours of training
