Multiples are a major part of KS2 Maths. In Year Three children will be taught to recognise and work out multiples for the numbers 2, 5, 10, 50 and 100. This goes hand in hand with their previous knowledge of times tables and multiplication.

A multiple of a number is the result of multiplication with some other whole number, for example 3 x 5 = 15 so 15 is a multiple of 3 and 5. Knowing the times tables for different numbers will help you to work out multiples. Each of the numbers in a times table is a multiple of the first number, for example 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 are all multiples of 5. The same rule applies in all of the times tables.
