Multiples of 249 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 249, you could start at 249, and keep adding 249 over and over: 249, 498, 747, 996, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 249. 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 249, you could just multiply 249 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 249? So, what are the multiples of 249? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 249 × 1 = 249 249 × 1 = 249 249 × 1 = 249 249 × 2 = 498 249 × 2 = 498 249 × 2 = 498 249 × 3 = 747 249 × 3 = 747 249 × 3 = 747 249 × 4 = 996 249 × 4 = 996 249 × 4 = 996 249 × 5 = 1245 249 × 5 = 1245 249 × 5 = 1245 249 × 6 = 1494 249 × 6 = 1494 249 × 6 = 1494 249 × 7 = 1743 249 × 7 = 1743 249 × 7 = 1743 249 × 8 = 1992 249 × 8 = 1992 249 × 8 = 1992 249 × 9 = 2241 249 × 9 = 2241 249 × 9 = 2241 249 × 10 = 2490 249 × 10 = 2490 249 × 10 = 2490 So, the first 10 multiples of 249 are: 249, 498, 747, 996, 1245, 1494, 1743, 1992, 2241 and 2490. There are an endless number of multiples of 249. You could choose any number to multiply by 249 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.
