### 1. What is a Multiple in Math? - Definition & Overview

A multiple in math is a number that has been multiplied by an integer. Learn about the definition of multiples, an overview of prime factorization, and how to find the least common multiple.

### 2. How to Find the Least Common Multiple

The smallest number that can be evenly divided by two numbers is the least common multiple of those two numbers. Learn about the least common multiple, why it is important, and how to find it. Understand what a multiple is, and recognize that sometimes, the least common multiple of two numbers is one of the original numbers.

### 3. Finding Multiples of Whole Numbers

Whole numbers are numbers 0 and larger, and can be multiplied together to form even bigger numbers called multiples. See this concept visualized using examples of multiplying cheeseburgers, marbles, and sheep.
