The **multiples** of a number are what you get when you multiply the number by other numbers (such as if you multiply it by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.).

The **least common multiple** is the smallest of the multiples that the pair of given numbers have in common.

For the pair of numbers 8 and 12:

- the multiples of 8 (up until 100) are: 8, 16,
**24**, 32, 40,**48**, 56, 64,**72**, 80, 88,**96** - the multiples of 12 (up until 100) are: 12,
**24**, 36,**48**, 60,**72**, 84,**96**

The common multiples are shown in **bold**. The *least* common multiple is
24.

For the pair of numbers 9 and 10:

- the multiples of 9 (up until 100) are: 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81,
**90**, 99 - the multiples of 10 (up until 100) are: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80,
**90**, 100

The common multiples are shown in **bold**. The least common multiple is
90.
