## MULTIPLE

### Multiple

In mathematics, a**multiple**is the product of any quantity and an integer. In other words, for the quantities

*a*and

*b*, we say that

*b*is a multiple of

*a*if

*b*=

*na*for some integer

*n*, which is called the multiplier or coefficient. If

*a*is not zero, this is equivalent to saying that

*b*/

*a*is an integer with no remainder. If

*a*and

*b*are both integers, and

*b*is a multiple of

*a*, then

*a*is called a divisor of

*b*.
