Hey,guys,could you explain,why multiples are “`num*2`

”,"`num*3`

" is it by default in Python that multiples are identified in such a way?And how does Python identify that when we put (`num*2`

) he should look for 20,`(num*3)-30`

?Cause I did not get it,please

Multiples are really just the set of numbers that you get when you multiply a certain number by every integer. If you have a number, say 3, its multiples are 3 itself (3 * 1), 6 (3 * 2), 9 (3 * 3), 12 and so on. It’s purely math, not Python-specific.

It depends on the values that you pass to the `first_three_multiples`

function. On line 9 you’re setting its `num`

parameter to be `10`

. Basically every instance of `num`

in the function will be replaced by `10`

, and `num * 2`

becomes 20, and so on.
