Tips and Tricks:
Given one multiple of a number we can find:
 Its successor multiple by adding the number to the given multiple.
 Its predecessor multiple by subtracting the number from the given multiple.
Important Notes:
 The first multiple of every number is the number itself, 27 × 1 = 27.
 Every multiple of a number is greater than or equal to the number itself.
27 × 1 = 27 (27=27)
27 × 2 = 54 (54>27)
27 × 3 = 81 (81>27)
27 × 4 =108 (108>27) and so on  Multiples of an even number are always even.
 A multiple is termed to be a common multiple if it is common to two or more numbers.
