An integer is any whole number. Because there is an infinite number of integers, there is also an infinite number of multiples. One way to test if a number (x) is a multiple of 48 is to divide x by 48. If the quotient is a whole number, then x is a multiple of 48.

It can also be helpful to view multiples in their relationship to factors. In an equation A x B = C, A and B are factors of C, and C is a multiple of A and B. For example, when you look at 48 x 2 = 96, the number 96 is a multiple of both 48 and 2, while the numbers 48 and 2 are both factors of 96.
