Finding multiples of a number

To find MULTIPLES of 8, we MULTIPLY 8 by other whole numbers (integers):

1x8= 8 2x8= 16 3x8= 24 4x8= 32 5x8= 40 etc

So 8, 16, 24, 32 and 40 are all multiples of 8.

When we count in 8s, each number we say is a multiple of 8, and as we could count in 8s forever, there is an infinite supply of multiples of 8.

We can find multiples of any number (including fractions and decimals), but we must always multiply by a whole number.

Applying the rules of divisibility can quickly identify whether a number is a multiple of some smaller numbers.
