Big thanks to David & Chris,

Thanks for the help, had a big bad brain fail and for some reason this
would not work earlier, but now does. Must be the glass of wine I had

It still does not sort out the problem if the user submits something
that is say 43 but its enough for me to work with. I can just get the
multiplier and then subtract the diference to get the values that I
need. Not elegant but hey I am no coder. 

Chris sorry about my inconsistancy but I am glad to see you saw past


$divisor = 7;
$number = $_POST['UserNumber'];
if ($number % $divisor == 0) {
	echo "Number ($number) submited is a multiple of
	$multiple = $number / $divisor;
	echo "$multiple x $divisor = $number\n";
	x(); // Thanks Chris
else {
	echo "Number ($number) submited is not a multiple of
	$multiple = $number / $divisor;
	echo "$multiple x $divisor = $number\n";
