A:
Multiples of 1742 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 1742, you could start at 1742, and keep adding 1742 over and over: 1742, 3484, 5226, 6968, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 1742. 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 1742, you could just multiply 1742 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 1742? So, what are the multiples of 1742? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 1742 × 1 = 1742 1742 × 1 = 1742 1742 × 1 = 1742 1742 × 2 = 3484 1742 × 2 = 3484 1742 × 2 = 3484 1742 × 3 = 5226 1742 × 3 = 5226 1742 × 3 = 5226 1742 × 4 = 6968 1742 × 4 = 6968 1742 × 4 = 6968 1742 × 5 = 8710 1742 × 5 = 8710 1742 × 5 = 8710 1742 × 6 = 10452 1742 × 6 = 10452 1742 × 6 = 10452 1742 × 7 = 12194 1742 × 7 = 12194 1742 × 7 = 12194 1742 × 8 = 13936 1742 × 8 = 13936 1742 × 8 = 13936 1742 × 9 = 15678 1742 × 9 = 15678 1742 × 9 = 15678 1742 × 10 = 17420 1742 × 10 = 17420 1742 × 10 = 17420 So, the first 10 multiples of 1742 are: 1742, 3484, 5226, 6968, 8710, 10452, 12194, 13936, 15678 and 17420. There are an endless number of multiples of 1742. You could choose any number to multiply by 1742 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.
