**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
