Multiples of 1659 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 1659, you could start at 1659, and keep adding 1659 over and over: 1659, 3318, 4977, 6636, and so on. Each of these numbers is a multiple of 1659. 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 1659, you could just multiply 1659 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 1659? So, what are the multiples of 1659? Let’s write it out using the multiplication method: 1659 × 1 = 1659 1659 × 1 = 1659 1659 × 1 = 1659 1659 × 2 = 3318 1659 × 2 = 3318 1659 × 2 = 3318 1659 × 3 = 4977 1659 × 3 = 4977 1659 × 3 = 4977 1659 × 4 = 6636 1659 × 4 = 6636 1659 × 4 = 6636 1659 × 5 = 8295 1659 × 5 = 8295 1659 × 5 = 8295 1659 × 6 = 9954 1659 × 6 = 9954 1659 × 6 = 9954 1659 × 7 = 11613 1659 × 7 = 11613 1659 × 7 = 11613 1659 × 8 = 13272 1659 × 8 = 13272 1659 × 8 = 13272 1659 × 9 = 14931 1659 × 9 = 14931 1659 × 9 = 14931 1659 × 10 = 16590 1659 × 10 = 16590 1659 × 10 = 16590 So, the first 10 multiples of 1659 are: 1659, 3318, 4977, 6636, 8295, 9954, 11613, 13272, 14931 and 16590. There are an endless number of multiples of 1659. You could choose any number to multiply by 1659 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.
