## What are Multiples of 12?

A number is called a multiple of 12 if it is completely divisible by 12 with the remainder 0.

For example, 12 divides 24 completely, so by the definition 24 is a multiple of 12. Similarly, 12, 24, 36, 48, 120, 1200, etc. are all examples of multiples of 12 as they are completely divisible 12.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 12 can be written as 12n for some integer n. So the set of multiples is given by

{12n: n is an integer}
