Important Notes:
 Every number is the smallest multiple of itself.
 Number 7 has infinite multiples as it can be multiplied with any whole number and we have infinite whole numbers.
 A multiple can be the common multiple of two or more numbers. Example: 20 is the common multiple of 2, 4, 5, 10,and 20.
 All the multiples of 7are alternatively odd and even numbers.
Solved Examples

Example 1 Sebastian has 2 baskets of apples. Basket 1 contains 16 apples and basket 2 contains 35 apples. Can he sort the apples in each basket into groups of 7 using multiples of 7?
Solution
If 7 divides the number of apples exactly, they can be sorted into groups of 7
14 ÷ 7 leaves a remainder 2 and cannot be sorted into groups of 7
But 35 ÷ 7 = 5 and leaves a remainder 0 so it can be grouped into 5 groups of 7
Apples in basket 1 cannot be sorted into groups of 7 while those in basket 2 can be. 
Example 2 Audrey has to determine how many weeks are there in a year?
Solution
Audrey knows there are 365 days in a year.
One week has 7 days.
To determine how many weeks are there in a year, Audrey will use the following steps:
365 ÷ 7, quotient =52 and remainder = 1.
There are approximately 52 weeks in a year.
Audrey determined that there are 52 weeks in a year.
