Ok, we have

11: 1x1=1, 11 is a multiple of 1

12: 1x2=2, 12 is a multiple of 2

24: 2x4=8, 24 is a multiple of 8

36: 3x6=18, 36 is a multiple of 18

Does this make sense?

If so you can now find your 5th number, there's not that many to choose from i.e. between 10 & 99 - Jan 4th 2012, 07:40 PMstevecowallRe: Finding two digit number

What have you tried? You know what a multiple is yeh? (Nod)

Start at 10, does that work?

Skip 11 and 12, we know the result there, then keep going, 13, 14, ....

Won't take you long, you should find it before you get to 20. - Jan 4th 2012, 07:46 PMpickslidesRe: Finding two digit number
