A:
Multiples of 2980 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 2980, you could start at 2980, and keep adding 2980 over and over: 2980, 5960, 8940, 11920, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 2980. 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 2980, you could just multiply 2980 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 2980? So, what are the multiples of 2980? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 2980 × 1 = 2980 2980 × 1 = 2980 2980 × 1 = 2980 2980 × 2 = 5960 2980 × 2 = 5960 2980 × 2 = 5960 2980 × 3 = 8940 2980 × 3 = 8940 2980 × 3 = 8940 2980 × 4 = 11920 2980 × 4 = 11920 2980 × 4 = 11920 2980 × 5 = 14900 2980 × 5 = 14900 2980 × 5 = 14900 2980 × 6 = 17880 2980 × 6 = 17880 2980 × 6 = 17880 2980 × 7 = 20860 2980 × 7 = 20860 2980 × 7 = 20860 2980 × 8 = 23840 2980 × 8 = 23840 2980 × 8 = 23840 2980 × 9 = 26820 2980 × 9 = 26820 2980 × 9 = 26820 2980 × 10 = 29800 2980 × 10 = 29800 2980 × 10 = 29800 So, the first 10 multiples of 2980 are: 2980, 5960, 8940, 11920, 14900, 17880, 20860, 23840, 26820 and 29800. There are an endless number of multiples of 2980. You could choose any number to multiply by 2980 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.
