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.
Write a number from the list that is a multiple of 10.
38, 20, 25, 38, 21, 38, 12, 34, 12, 1
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!
