A multiple is the result of multiplying a number by an integer. In our case, the number we’re multiplying by is six. The integers we’ve been multiplying by are 11 and 12. That means that the next integer we’ll multiply by is 13.

The numbers inside the boxes are the multiples. What multiple goes inside this box? We know it’s the result of six times 13. We also can recognize a pattern between 66 and 72.

To get from 66 to 72, we add six. We also can add six to 72 to find our next multiple. 72 plus six equals 78. Six times 13 equals 78.
