In this worksheet, the multiples of a number must be identified from a list.

'Find the multiples' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Curriculum subtopic:   Write Multiplication/Division Statements for Known Tables

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn to identify multiples of a given number.

 

Multiples are numbers that we get when a number is multiplied.

Knowing the times table facts for numbers up to 12 will make this skill easier.

 

Here is the 3 times table. The multiples of 3 are shown in green

 

 

Some multiples of a number are larger than the ones we use in times tables.
So, 39 would also be a multiple of 3.

 

Let's try an example question on multiples. 

 

Example 1

Write a number from the list that is a multiple of 10.

38, 20, 25, 38, 21, 38, 12, 34, 12, 1

 

Answer

If we think carefully about all the multiples of ten we know, they all end in a zero. 

For example: 10, 20, 30, 40 ...

20 is the only multiple of 10 in our list because it ends in a zero. 

It is also in the ten times table!

2 × 10 = 20.

 

Now that you are feeling confident, move on to some questions about multiples. Good luck!
