Multiples of 251

Accepted Solution

A:
Multiples of 251 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 251, you could start at 251, and keep adding 251 over and over: 251, 502, 753, 1004, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 251. 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 251, you could just multiply 251 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 251? So, what are the multiples of 251? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 251 × 1 = 251 251 × 1 = 251 251 × 1 = 251 251 × 2 = 502 251 × 2 = 502 251 × 2 = 502 251 × 3 = 753 251 × 3 = 753 251 × 3 = 753 251 × 4 = 1004 251 × 4 = 1004 251 × 4 = 1004 251 × 5 = 1255 251 × 5 = 1255 251 × 5 = 1255 251 × 6 = 1506 251 × 6 = 1506 251 × 6 = 1506 251 × 7 = 1757 251 × 7 = 1757 251 × 7 = 1757 251 × 8 = 2008 251 × 8 = 2008 251 × 8 = 2008 251 × 9 = 2259 251 × 9 = 2259 251 × 9 = 2259 251 × 10 = 2510 251 × 10 = 2510 251 × 10 = 2510 So, the first 10 multiples of 251 are: 251, 502, 753, 1004, 1255, 1506, 1757, 2008, 2259 and 2510. There are an endless number of multiples of 251. You could choose any number to multiply by 251 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.
