Today we are going to continue working on multiples. Remember, multiples are the answers to the times tables. Common multiples are those that are in 2 or more groups.
It is always a good idea to list your multiples side by side so you can compare more easily.
Think back to yesterday and try to solve the following problem.
My friend says that if they can be equally shared in threes, fours and sixes, the number of pebbles must be in the 3, 4 and 6 times tables. Is this true? How can we be sure? She also says that she knows the number of pebbles is definitely 12. Is she correct? How can we check? Are there other amounts that the number of pebbles could be?
