Law of multiple proportion (Chem.), the generalization that
when the same elements unite in more than one proportion,
forming two or more different compounds, the higher
proportions of the elements in such compounds are simple
multiples of the lowest proportion, or the proportions are
connected by some simple common factor; thus, iron and
oxygen unite in the proportions FeO, Fe2O3, Fe3O4,
in which compounds, considering the oxygen, 3 and 4 are
simple multiplies of 1. Called also the Law of Dalton or
Dalton's Law, from its discoverer.
Multiple algebra, a branch of advanced mathematics that
treats of operations upon units compounded of two or more

Note: A
common multiple of two or more numbers contains each of
them a number of times exactly; thus, 24 is a common
multiple of 3 and 4. The
least common multiple is the smallest number that will do
this; thus, 12 is the least common multiple of 3 and 4
(abbreviated LCM).
[1913 Webster]
