# What are multiples?

## Multiples

**Multiples are really just extended times tables.**

The multiples of 2 are all the numbers in the 2 times table, such as 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and so on.

Multiples of 2 always end with a 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0. You can tell 2286, for example, is a multiple of 2 because it ends with a 6.

The multiples of 5 are all the numbers in the 5 times table, such as 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on.

Multiples of 5 always end with a 5 or a 0. You can tell 465, for example, is a multiple of 5 because it ends with a 5.
