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 509, you could start at 509, and keep adding 509 over and over: 509, 1018, 1527, 2036, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 509. 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 509, you could just multiply 509 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 509?
So, what are the multiples of 509? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method:
509
×
1
=
509
509 × 1 = 509
509 × 1 = 509
509
×
2
=
1018
509 × 2 = 1018
509 × 2 = 1018
509
×
3
=
1527
509 × 3 = 1527
509 × 3 = 1527
509
×
4
=
2036
509 × 4 = 2036
509 × 4 = 2036
509
×
5
=
2545
509 × 5 = 2545
509 × 5 = 2545
509
×
6
=
3054
509 × 6 = 3054
509 × 6 = 3054
509
×
7
=
3563
509 × 7 = 3563
509 × 7 = 3563
509
×
8
=
4072
509 × 8 = 4072
509 × 8 = 4072
509
×
9
=
4581
509 × 9 = 4581
509 × 9 = 4581
509
×
10
=
5090
509 × 10 = 5090
509 × 10 = 5090
So, the first 10 multiples of 509 are: 509, 1018, 1527, 2036, 2545, 3054, 3563, 4072, 4581 and 5090.
There are an endless number of multiples of 509. You could choose any number to multiply by 509 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.
