When you multiply two numbers, you will get a number, however, if you generate a series of a fixed number with variable numbers then we call it multiples. To understand multiples, you should know the concept of multiplication. For example, we have a number a and a number b. When we multiply both numbers, we will get another number which is the multiple of a and b. It is not necessary that multiplication of two same or different numbers will result in a different number, it can be the same number.
Let's pick up a random number which is 18. The number 18 has different multiples such as , , , , , and . A natural multiple is obtained when a natural number is multiplied by another natural number.

Properties of the Multiples of a Number
Any number, except 0, is a multiple of itself and one.
Zero is a multiple of all numbers.
Any number, except zero, has infinite multiples.
If a number, a, is a multiple of b, the division between a and b is exact.
The sum of several multiples of a number is another multiple of that number.
The difference of two multiples of a number is another multiple of that number.
If a number is a multiple of another, and this number is a multiple of a third one, the first number is a multiple of the third one.
If a number is a multiple of another, all the multiples of the first number are also multiples of the second.
