 # KS2 Maths Quiz - Properties of Numbers (Year 5) (Questions)

By the time they reach Year 5, the third year in KS2, children should be familiar with certain properties of numbers which they have come across in their Maths lessons. They should, for example, know the difference between multiples and factors and should also know what square numbers are.

The properties of numbers are things like factors or multiples. Learning the properties of numbers is all about understanding the relationships between them. For example, do you know the multiples and factors of numbers? Let's take the number 8. Its multiples are all of the numbers in the 8 times table from 0 upwards. Its factors are the numbers that can be multiplied together to make 8, which are 1, 2, 4 and 8. How much have you learned about the properties of numbers?

1. How do we know that a number is a multiple of 4?
 [ ] It ends in 2, 4 or 8 [x] The last two digits are divisible by 4 [ ] It is also a multiple of 8 [ ] There is no way of knowing
We can ignore numbers in the 100s column as 100 is itself divisible by 4
2. Which of these numbers is a multiple of 4?
 [ ] 5,698 [ ] 2,463 [ ] 4,441 [x] 2,548
We can easily work this out as 2,548 is the only number where the last 2 digits are divisible by 4
3. Which of these numbers is a multiple of 7?
 [ ] 15 [ ] 22 [x] 35 [ ] 37
35 is 5 x 7
4. What is a square number?
 [ ] A number that can be divided by 4 [ ] A number that is a multiple of 6 and 7 [x] The product when a number is multiplied by itself [ ] A number that is written in a square
For example 3 x 3 = 9 therefore 9 is the square number of 3
5. What is the square number of 6?
 [ ] 6 [ ] 12 [x] 36 [ ] 60
36 is 6 x 6
6. What is 5 squared?
 [ ] 5 [ ] 10 [ ] 15 [x] 25
5 x 5 = 25
7. Which number multiplied by itself gives 49?
 [ ] 3 [ ] 6 [ ] 5 [x] 7
