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.
