Multiples of 52

Accepted Solution

A:
Multiples of 52 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 52, you could start at 52, and keep adding 52 over and over: 52, 104, 156, 208, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 52. 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 52, you could just multiply 52 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 52? So, what are the multiples of 52? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 52 × 1 = 52 52 × 1 = 52 52 × 1 = 52 52 × 2 = 104 52 × 2 = 104 52 × 2 = 104 52 × 3 = 156 52 × 3 = 156 52 × 3 = 156 52 × 4 = 208 52 × 4 = 208 52 × 4 = 208 52 × 5 = 260 52 × 5 = 260 52 × 5 = 260 52 × 6 = 312 52 × 6 = 312 52 × 6 = 312 52 × 7 = 364 52 × 7 = 364 52 × 7 = 364 52 × 8 = 416 52 × 8 = 416 52 × 8 = 416 52 × 9 = 468 52 × 9 = 468 52 × 9 = 468 52 × 10 = 520 52 × 10 = 520 52 × 10 = 520 So, the first 10 multiples of 52 are: 52, 104, 156, 208, 260, 312, 364, 416, 468 and 520. There are an endless number of multiples of 52. You could choose any number to multiply by 52 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.
