The word 'multiple' sounds like multiply, which can also be called 'times'.
Multiples are numbers in a times table.
That's it - all there is to it!
These can be really powerful to recognise and find, in order to simplify complex problems and speed up your mental maths.
e.g. Find the first 10 multiples of 4.
This question means the same as 'find the first 10 numbers in the 4 times table'.
A common slip up is to forget that 4 is the first number.
If we list these multiples, we have:
4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40
In this activity, you will find a given amount of multiples of numbers, applying your knowledge of times tables.
