# What are the first five multiples of 7?

Apr 20, 2017

$7 , \text{ "14," "21," "28," } 35$ are multiples of $7$

#### Explanation:

Multiplying is a short way of showing repeated addition.

The answers obtained from always adding the same number give us the multiples of that number.

$7 = 7 \times 1 = 7$

$7 + 7 = 2 \times 7 = 14$

$7 + 7 + 7 = 3 \times 7 = 21$

$7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + = 4 \times 7 = 28$

$7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 5 \times 7 = 35$

$7 , \text{ "14," "21," "28," } 35$ are multiples of $7$
