Multiples of 2500 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 2500, you could start at 2500, and keep adding 2500 over and over: 2500, 5000, 7500, 10000, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 2500. 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 2500, you could just multiply 2500 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 2500? So, what are the multiples of 2500? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 2500 × 1 = 2500 2500 × 1 = 2500 2500 × 1 = 2500 2500 × 2 = 5000 2500 × 2 = 5000 2500 × 2 = 5000 2500 × 3 = 7500 2500 × 3 = 7500 2500 × 3 = 7500 2500 × 4 = 10000 2500 × 4 = 10000 2500 × 4 = 10000 2500 × 5 = 12500 2500 × 5 = 12500 2500 × 5 = 12500 2500 × 6 = 15000 2500 × 6 = 15000 2500 × 6 = 15000 2500 × 7 = 17500 2500 × 7 = 17500 2500 × 7 = 17500 2500 × 8 = 20000 2500 × 8 = 20000 2500 × 8 = 20000 2500 × 9 = 22500 2500 × 9 = 22500 2500 × 9 = 22500 2500 × 10 = 25000 2500 × 10 = 25000 2500 × 10 = 25000 So, the first 10 multiples of 2500 are: 2500, 5000, 7500, 10000, 12500, 15000, 17500, 20000, 22500 and 25000. There are an endless number of multiples of 2500. You could choose any number to multiply by 2500 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. Practice Finding Multiples of Other Numbers Finding multiples of any number can be done using the same methods as outlined above.
