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 2408, you could start at 2408, and keep adding 2408 over and over: 2408, 4816, 7224, 9632, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 2408. 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 2408, you could just multiply 2408 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 2408?
So, what are the multiples of 2408? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method:
2408
×
1
=
2408
2408 × 1 = 2408
2408 × 1 = 2408
2408
×
2
=
4816
2408 × 2 = 4816
2408 × 2 = 4816
2408
×
3
=
7224
2408 × 3 = 7224
2408 × 3 = 7224
2408
×
4
=
9632
2408 × 4 = 9632
2408 × 4 = 9632
2408
×
5
=
12040
2408 × 5 = 12040
2408 × 5 = 12040
2408
×
6
=
14448
2408 × 6 = 14448
2408 × 6 = 14448
2408

2408
×
10
=
24080
2408 × 10 = 24080
2408 × 10 = 24080
So, the first 10 multiples of 2408 are: 2408, 4816, 7224, 9632, 12040, 14448, 16856, 19264, 21672 and 24080.
There are an endless number of multiples of 2408. You could choose any number to multiply by 2408 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.
