Methods
Methods for Finding Multiples:
The most common way to find multiples is to use multiplication. Multiplication of whole numbers always results in multiples of the numbers being multiplied. To find the first few multiples of 278, you could just multiply 278 by 1, then 2, then 3, and so on, until you have as many multiples as you would like. This is shown in the next section.
For younger students that donβt know how to multiply yet, the same result can be found just by counting, or skip-counting. To find multiples of any number, just add the number to itself multiple times. For instance, if you want to find the multiples of 278, start at 278 and keep adding 278 over and over: 278, 556, 834, 1112, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 278.
There are an endless number of multiples! You can keep using either of these methods to find as many multiples as you would like.
What are the Multiples of 278?
Letβs find the first 10 multiples of 278 by multiplying:
278
β
1
=
278
278 * 1 = 278
278 β 1 = 278
278
β
2
=
556
278 * 2 = 556
278 β 2 = 556
278
β
3
=
834
278 * 3 = 834
278 β 3 = 834
278
β
4
=
1112
278 * 4 = 1112
278 β 4 = 1112
278
β
5
=
1390
278 * 5 = 1390
278 β 5 = 1390
278
β
6
=
1668
278 * 6 = 1668
278 β 6 = 1668
278
β
7
=
1946
278 * 7 = 1946
278 β 7 = 1946
278
β
8
=
2224
278 * 8 = 2224
278 β 8 = 2224
278
β
9
=
2502
278 * 9 = 2502
278 β 9 = 2502
278
β
10
=
2780
278 * 10 = 2780
278 β 10 = 2780
So, the first 10 multiples of 278 are: 278, 556, 834, 1112, 1112, 1668, 1946, 2224, 2502 and 2780.
Interesting Facts about Multiples
β’ The primary multiple of any number is itself.
β’ The result of any multiplication of whole numbers is a multiple of all the numbers being multiplied together. As such, every multiple is also a multiple of another number.
β’ Every multiple of even numbers will also be even.
β’ The successive multiples of odd numbers alternate between odd and even numbers.
β’ You can also find negative multiples of a number by multiplying by negative numbers.
