# Multiples (Year 3)

Multiples are a big part of KS2 Maths. In Year Three, you'll learn about multiples for numbers like 2, 5, 10, 50, and 100. It's connected to what you know about times tables and multiplication.

A multiple is what you get when you multiply a number by another whole number. For example, 3 x 5 = 15, so 15 is a multiple of 3 and 5. If you know your times tables, it helps you figure out multiples. Every number in a times table is a multiple of the first one, like 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 are all multiples of 5. This rule works in all times tables.
