Multiples of 18 Solved Examples

Example 1: Richard plants 18 tulip plants in each row. How many plants will be there in all up to the 52nd row?
Solution:
In each row, he has 18 tulip plants.
In the 52nd row, he will have 18 plants.
So up to the nth row, he will have n × 18 plants
Up to the 52nd row, the total number of plants will be 52 × 18 = 936 plants
Therefore, 936 plants up to the 52nd row. 
Example 2: Jonathan is playing a video game. After every level, he gains a credit of 18 points. On completing the 18th level, how many points would he have scored?
Solution:
Credit gained at every level = 18 points
Credit gained at 18th level = 18 × 18 = 324 points
Therefore, Score at 18th level = 324 points.
Hence, 324 is the 18^{th} multiple of 18 
Example 3: Ron attends his gym classes every 18 days. If he has attended his first class today, in how many days will he attend his 6th class?
Solution:
If today is his first class, his next class will be after 18 days.
His 2nd class will be after 2 ×18 = 36 days
His 3rd class will be after 3 × 18 = 54 days
His nth class will be after n ×18 = 18 × n days
His 6th class will be after 6 × 18 = 108 days
Therefore, in 108 days he will attend his 6th class
