Multiples of 18 Solved Examples

Example 1: Sheryl decides to make packs of pencils one by one in such a way that there are 17 pencils in the first pack, 34 in the second, 51 in the third, and so on. How many pencils would she need to make the 27th pack?
Solution:
In the 1st pack, Sheryl needs = 17 pencils.
In the 2nd pack, she needs = 34 pencils.
In the 3rd pack she needs = 51 pencils
We can observe pattern of packs of pencils follows multiples of 17.
Thus, for 27th pack she needs= 27 × 17 = 459 pencils
Hence, Sheryl will have 459 pencils in the 27th pack 
Example 2: Margot has collected coins from 9 different countries. She has collected 17 coins from each country. How many coins does she have?
Solution:
Margot has visited 9 countries and she has 17 coins from each country.
Therefore, the total number of coins with Margot is = 17 × 9 = 153.
Hence, Margot has 153 coins.
