Multiples of 21 Solved Examples

Example 1: Help Linda find which among the first ten multiples of 21 are also the multiples of 3 and 7.
Solution:
The first 10 multiples of 21 are, 21, 42, 63, 84, 105, 126, 147, 168, 189 and 210.
Each multiple of 21 is entirely divisible by 7 and occurs in the table of 7, hence, each multiple of 21 is also the multiple of 7. As each multiple of 21 is entirely divisible by 3 and also occurs in the table of 3, hence every multiple of 21 is also a multiple of 3.We conclude that all the first ten multiples of 21 are also the multiples of 3 and 7.

Example 2: Pick all the odd multiples of 21 from the given list.
21, 42, 63, 84, 126, 147, 189, 210
Solution:
Odd numbers are those which are not divisible by 2. The odd multiples in the list are 21, 63, 147, and 189.
Hence, Odd multiples of 21 = 21, 63, 147, 189
