00:00:00.280 --> 00:00:05.920
Which number is a multiple of three and a multiple of seven?
00:00:06.760 --> 00:00:09.040
Let’s start with 18.
00:00:09.840 --> 00:00:18.880
We know that three times six equals 18, and that means 18 is a multiple of three.
00:00:19.560 --> 00:00:30.640
In order for 18 to be a multiple of seven, seven times some whole number must equal 18.
00:00:31.160 --> 00:00:38.000
Seven times two equals 14, and seven times three equals 21.
00:00:38.600 --> 00:00:51.000
There is no whole number we can multiply seven by to equal 18, and that means 18 is not a multiple of three and seven.
00:00:51.880 --> 00:00:56.440
Next step, let’s think about three.
00:00:57.080 --> 00:01:01.600
Can the number three be a multiple of seven?
00:01:02.120 --> 00:01:04.760
Three is not a multiple of seven.
00:01:05.600 --> 00:01:08.000
What about 49?
00:01:08.880 --> 00:01:12.440
Seven times seven equals 49.
00:01:12.960 --> 00:01:17.960
Is there anything we can multiply by three to equal 49?
00:01:18.560 --> 00:01:27.520
No, 49 is not a multiple of three; it’s only a multiple of seven.
00:01:27.880 --> 00:01:30.320
What about 42?
00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:34.600
Seven times six equals 42.
00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:42.000
42 is a multiple of seven, and six is a multiple of three.
00:01:42.560 --> 00:01:47.600
That means 42 is also divisible by three.
00:01:48.040 --> 00:01:58.000
Three times 14 equals 42, which means 42 is a multiple of three and a multiple of seven.
00:01:58.880 --> 00:02:09.640
If you didn’t remember all of these multiplication facts, another way to find the multiples of three and seven is to list them out.
00:02:10.040 --> 00:02:36.200
Three times one is three; three times two is six; and keep going: nine, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42.
00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:52.480
And for seven, seven times one is seven; seven times two is 14, 21, 28, 35, 42.
00:02:53.040 --> 00:02:58.400
42 is a multiple of seven and three.
00:02:58.720 --> 00:03:05.080
We also notice that 21 is a multiple of seven and three.
00:03:05.480 --> 00:03:18.560
But 21 wasn’t in our box, only 42 was, which makes our final answer 42.
