A:
Multiples of 3984 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 3984, you could start at 3984, and keep adding 3984 over and over: 3984, 7968, 11952, 15936, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 3984. 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 3984, you could just multiply 3984 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 3984? So, what are the multiples of 3984? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 3984 × 1 = 3984 3984 × 1 = 3984 3984 × 1 = 3984 3984 × 2 = 7968 3984 × 2 = 7968 3984 × 2 = 7968 3984 × 3 = 11952 3984 × 3 = 11952 3984 × 3 = 11952 3984 × 4 = 15936 3984 × 4 = 15936 3984 × 4 = 15936 3984 × 5 = 19920 3984 × 5 = 19920 3984 × 5 = 19920 3984 × 6 = 23904 3984 × 6 = 23904 3984 × 6 = 23904 3984 × 7 = 27888 3984 × 7 = 27888 3984 × 7 = 27888 3984 × 8 = 31872 3984 × 8 = 31872 3984 × 8 = 31872 3984 × 9 = 35856 3984 × 9 = 35856 3984 × 9 = 35856 3984 × 10 = 39840 3984 × 10 = 39840 3984 × 10 = 39840 So, the first 10 multiples of 3984 are: 3984, 7968, 11952, 15936, 19920, 23904, 27888, 31872, 35856 and 39840. There are an endless number of multiples of 3984. You could choose any number to multiply by 3984 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.
