The result of multiplying a number by an integer (not by a fraction).

Examples:

• 12 is a multiple of 3, because 3 × 4 = 12

• −6 is a multiple of 3, because 3 × −2 = −6

• But 7 is NOT a multiple of 3

Examples:

• 12 is a multiple of 3, because 3 × 4 = 12

• −6 is a multiple of 3, because 3 × −2 = −6

• But 7 is NOT a multiple of 3
