## Counting in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100

Multiples
When we multiply a number by another number, we get multiple.

In other words, multiples of a number are the numbers in the times table of that number.

For example- Multiples of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20… and so on.

Counting in multiples of 4

Counting in multiples of 4 means going up in 4s. To count in multiples of 4, we add 4 at every step.

For example:

Katie spends £4 daily on a bus fare. What is the amount of money spent by her if she travels for 7 days?

= £4 + £4 + £4 + £4 + £4 + £4 + £4

= £28

Counting in multiples of 8

Counting in multiples of 8 means going up in the 8s. To count in multiples of 8, we add 8 at every step.

For example:

Count the number of petals.

= 8 + 8 + 8

= 24

Counting in multiples of 50

Counting in multiples of 50 means going up in the 50s. To count in multiples of 50, we add 50 at every step.

For Example:

Macie bought 6 packets of toffees. Each packet had 50 toffees. How many toffees did she buy?

= 50 + 50 + 50 + 50 + 50 + 50

= 300

Counting in multiples of 100

Counting in multiples of 100 means going up in the 100s. To count in multiples of 100, we add 100 at every step.

For example: Jensen saves £100 in one month. What is the total amount of money saved by Jensen in 8 months?

= £100 + £100 +  £100 +  £100 +  £100 +  £100 +  £100 + £100

= £800

Let’s try a question:

Question: What is 8 more than 24?

Explanation:

24 + 8

= 32
