Methods
Methods for Finding Multiples:
For a beginner, you can find the multiples of a number by skip-counting to the next number. For Instance, if you want to find the multiples of 556, you could start at 556, and keep adding 556 over and over: 556, 1112, 1668, 2224, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 556. Typically, this works best only for smaller numbers, as adding larger numbers together over and over can be difficult.
Another way to do this is to use multiplication. To find the first few multiples of 556, you could just multiply 556 by each number in sequence, first multiplying by 1, then 2, then 3, and so on, which we will outline below.
What are the Multiples of 556?
So, what are the multiples of 556? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method:
556
×
1
=
556
556 × 1 = 556
556 × 1 = 556
556
×
2
=
1112
556 × 2 = 1112
556 × 2 = 1112
556
×
3
=
1668
556 × 3 = 1668
556 × 3 = 1668
556
×
4
=
2224
556 × 4 = 2224
556 × 4 = 2224
556
×
5
=
2780
556 × 5 = 2780
556 × 5 = 2780
556
×
6
=
3336
556 × 6 = 3336
556 × 6 = 3336
556
×
7
=
3892
556 × 7 = 3892
556 × 7 = 3892
556
×
8
=
4448
556 × 8 = 4448
556 × 8 = 4448
556
×
9
=
5004
556 × 9 = 5004
556 × 9 = 5004
556
×
10
=
5560
556 × 10 = 5560
556 × 10 = 5560
So, the first 10 multiples of 556 are: 556, 1112, 1668, 2224, 2780, 3336, 3892, 4448, 5004 and 5560.
There are an endless number of multiples of 556. You could choose any number to multiply by 556 to find a new multiple!
Interesting Facts about Multiples
• Every number is considered the smallest multiple of itself.
• A multiple of a number is very often also the multiple of another number. This is because if you multiply two numbers together, the result is a multiple of both numbers.
• All multiples of even numbers are even.
• The multiples of odd numbers, in sequence, alternate between odd and even numbers.
• You can also find the negative multiples of a number by multiplying by negative numbers.
