A multiple of a number is a whole number times that number. For example, some multiples of 6 are

6, 12, 18, 24, 30, and 36

If two numbers are given then a common multiple of the two numbers is a number that is a multiple of both. Of all the common multiples of two numbers, there is a smallest one which we call the least common multiple.
