Multiples of 889 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 889, you could start at 889, and keep adding 889 over and over: 889, 1778, 2667, 3556, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 889. 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 889, you could just multiply 889 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 889? So, what are the multiples of 889? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 889 × 1 = 889 889 × 1 = 889 889 × 1 = 889 889 × 2 = 1778 889 × 2 = 1778 889 × 2 = 1778 889 × 3 = 2667 889 × 3 = 2667 889 × 3 = 2667 889 × 4 = 3556 889 × 4 = 3556 889 × 4 = 3556 889 × 5 = 4445 889 × 5 = 4445 889 × 5 = 4445 889 × 6 = 5334 889 × 6 = 5334 889 × 6 = 5334 889 × 7 = 6223 889 × 7 = 6223 889 × 7 = 6223 889 × 8 = 7112 889 × 8 = 7112 889 × 8 = 7112 889 × 9 = 8001 889 × 9 = 8001 889 × 9 = 8001 889 × 10 = 8890 889 × 10 = 8890 889 × 10 = 8890 So, the first 10 multiples of 889 are: 889, 1778, 2667, 3556, 4445, 5334, 6223, 7112, 8001 and 8890. There are an endless number of multiples of 889. You could choose any number to multiply by 889 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.
