 (a) 6 and 8 multiples of 6 are: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 multiples of 8 are: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 180 Common multiples of 6 and 8 are: 24, 48, 72 (b) 12 and 18 multiples of 12 are: 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120 multiples of 18 are: 18, 36, 54, 72, 90, 108, 126, 144, 162, 180 Common multiples of 12 and 18 are 36, 72, 108
4. Write all the numbers less than 100 which are common multiples of 3 and 4.

 Numbers less than 100 which are multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42, 45, 48,51, 54, 57, 60, 63, 66, 69, 72, 75, 78, 81, 84, 87, 90, 96, 99 Numbers less than 100 which are multiples of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40 , 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96 The numbers less than 100 which are common multiples of 3 and 4 are 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 and 96

5. Which of the following numbers are co-prime?
(a) 18 and 35 (b) 15 and 37 (c) 30 and 415
(d) 17 and 68 (e) 216 and 215 (f) 81 and 16

(a) 18 and 35 (c) 30 and 415 (d) 17 and 68 (e) 216 and 215 (f) 81 and 16
 We know that Two numbers having only 1 as a common factor are called co-prime numbers. Factor of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 Factor of 35 are 1, 5, 7 As the common factor of 18 and 35 is just 1, there for 18 and 35 are co-prime numbers (b) 15 and 37 Factor of 15 are 1, 5, 15 Factor of 37 are 1, 37 As the common factor of 15 and 37 is just 1, there for 15 and 37 are co-prime numbers Factor of 30 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30 Factor of 415 are 1, 5, 15, 415 As the common factor of 30 and 415  are 1, 5, 15 there for 30 and 415 are not co-prime numbers Factor of 17 are 1,17 Factor of 68 are 1, 2, 4, 17 As the common factor of 17 and 68 are 1,17 there for 17 and 68 are not co-prime numbers Factor of 216 are 1, 2, 8, 108, 216 Factor of 215 are 1, 5, 15 As the common factor  216 and 215 is just 1,there for  216 and 215 are co-prime numbers Factor of 81 are 1, 3, 9, 27, 81 Factor of 16 are 1, 2, 4, 8 As the common factor 81 and 16 is just 1, there for 81 and 16 are co-prime numbers

6. A number is divisible by both 5 and 12. By which other number will that number be
always divisible?

 (a) 5 and 12 multiples of 5 are: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 multiples of 12 are: 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 Common multiple of 5 and 12 is 60,hence 60 is that number 60 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 60

7. A number is divisible by 12. By what other numbers will that number be divisible?
