# Multiples that are shared by two or more numbers are called __________

A multiple is a product that we get when one number is multiplied by another number.

## Answer: Multiples that are shared by two or more numbers are called the common multiples of the two numbers.

Common multiples of any two numbers are the multiples that are common to both the given numbers.

**Explanation:**

For example, the multiples of 3 can be listed as 3, 6, 9, 12, **15**, 18, 21, 24, 27, **30**.

Similarly, the multiples of 5 can be listed as 5, 10, **15**, 20, 25, **30**.

Now, if we identify the common multiples of 3 and 5 in these two lists, we get 15 and 30.

### Hence, the multiples that are shared by two or more numbers are called their common multiples.
