In this activity, we will be learning about finding the first ten multiples of a number.

A multiple is the **product** we get when we **multiply** a number.

So, some **multiples of 5** would be 5, 10, 15, 20...

It's important to remember that when we multiply a number by 1, it stays the same.

So, multiples are **not always larger** than the number itself.

We can find the first ten multiples of a number by skip counting or using times tables facts.

Let's try an example together.

**Example**

Write the first 10 multiples of 6.

**Answer**

The first multiple of 10 is **1** × 3 =3

The second multiple of 10 is **2** × 3 = 6

....just like your times tables

The first ten multiples of 6 are as follows:

**1. **6

**2. ** 12

**3. ** 18

**4. ** 24

**5.** 30

**6.** 36

**7. ** 42

**8. ** 48

**9.** 54

**10.** 60

So, if you know your times tables, you know your multiples!!
