Multiples of 4

Introduction

When divided by 4, the numbers that have a remainder value of 0 are known as multiples of 4. In other words, the product of 4 and any natural number is the multiple of 4. For instance, multiplying four by five is 20, making 20 a multiple of 4. Examples of multiples of four are 4, 20, 32, 40, and so forth. As a result, all numbers that can be divided by or a product of 4 are multiples of 4.

We will learn more about multiples of four in this article, as well as the list of multiples of four, how to find multiples of four, and solutions to frequently asked multiples of four questions.

What are Multiples of 4?

Definition

The values obtained by multiplying four by any number are the multiples of 4. The first multiple of the number 4 is itself.

The multiples of 4 start at four and go on infinitely.

The first few multiples of 4 are the answers to the four times table.

Four Times Table
1 × 4 = 4
2 × 4 = 8
3 × 4 = 12
4 × 4 = 16
5 × 4 = 20
6 × 4 = 24
7 × 4 = 28
8 × 4 = 32
9 × 4 = 36
10 × 4 = 40
11 × 4 = 44
12 × 4 = 48
13 × 4 = 52
14 × 4 = 56
15 × 4 = 60

Let us say, for example, 5 × 4 = 20; the fifth multiple of four is twenty. In 9 × 4 = 36, the ninth multiple of four is thirty-six. The table below shows the first fifteen multiples of four.

Four Times Table
first multiple of 4 = 4
second multiple of 4 = 8
third multiple of 4 = 12
fourth multiple of 4 = 16
fifth multiple of 4 = 20
sixth multiple of 4 = 24
seventh multiple of 4 = 28
eighth  multiple of 4 = 32
ninth multiple of 4 = 36
tenth multiple of 4 = 40
eleventh multiple of 4 = 44
twelfth multiple of 4 = 48
thirteenth multiple of 4 = 52
fourteenth multiple of 4 = 56
fifteenth multiple of 4 = 60

The number of multiples of four is infinite. A multiple of 4 is a number that may be produced by multiplying four by another number. Because 0 × 4 = 0, 0 is a multiple of 4 as well.

Start counting from zero and keep adding 4 to find multiples of 4. To find the following multiple of 4, add 4 to the multiple you already know.

How do you find multiples of 4?

Multiples of 4 by Skip Counting

Multiples of 4 by skip counting or repeated addition involve adding 4 to the numbers starting from 4. So, to show the first ten multiples of 4 by skip counting, we have,

Start: 4  ( 1st multiple of 4 )
4 + 4 = 8 ( 2nd multiple of 4 )
8 + 4 = 12 ( 3rd  multiple of 4 )
12 + 4 = 16 ( 4th  multiple of 4 )
16 + 4 = 20 ( 5th multiple of 4 )
20 + 4 = 24 ( 6th  multiple of 4 )
24 + 4 = 28 ( 7th multiple of 4 )
28 + 4 = 32 ( 8th multiple of 4 )
32 + 4 = 36 ( 9th multiple of 4 )
36 + 4 = 40 ( 10th multiple of 4 )

Multiples of 4 by Multiplication

We multiply four by the counting numbers to find the multiples of 4. We shall multiply four by one by two by three, and so on. By multiplying four by the first ten counting numbers, the table below displays the first ten multiples of 4.

1 × 4 = 4
2 × 4 = 8
3 × 4 = 12
4 × 4 = 16
5 × 4 = 20
6 × 4 = 24
7 × 4 = 28
8 × 4 = 32
9 × 4 = 36
10 × 4 = 40

Multiples of 4 by Division

Numbers that can be divided by four precisely without any remainder are said to be multiples of four. Hence, all multiples are divisible by 4.

Let us have the following examples:

( a ) 16 ÷ 4 = 4; since 16 can be divided by 4 without a remainder, it is a multiple of 4.
( b ) 20 ÷ 4 = 4; since 20 can be divided by 4 without a remainder, it is a multiple of 4. 
( c ) 36 ÷ 4 = 4; since 36 can be divided by 4 without a remainder, it is a multiple of 4. 
( d ) 40 ÷ 4 = 4; since 40 can be divided by 4 without a remainder, it is a multiple of 4. 

Calculating Multiples of 4 ( nth Multiple of 4 )

Simply multiplying a number by 4 will get the multiple of 4. 4n yields the nth multiple of 4.

As a result, we multiply 4 by n to locate the multiple in the nth position in the multiples sequence.

Example 1

Find the 26th multiple of 4.

Solution

The 26th multiple of 4 is 4 × 26 = 104. 

Example 2

Find the 43rd multiple of 4.

Solution

The 43rd multiple of 4 is 4 × 43 = 172. 

Example 3

Find the 52nd multiple of 4.

Solution

The 52nd multiple of 4 is 4 × 52 = 208. 

Summary

The values obtained by multiplying 4 by any number are the multiples of 4. The first multiple of the number 4 is itself.

The number of multiples of four is infinite. A multiple of 4 is a number that may be produced by multiplying four by another number. Because 0 × 4 = 0, 0 is a multiple of 4 as well.

The first few multiples of 4 are the answers to the four times table.

How do you teach multiples of 4?

The following are the points to remember about multiples of 4.

( a ) All multiples of end in the same digits, which are 4, 8, 2, 6, and 0. The table below illustrates that the final digits have the same pattern of 4, 8, 2, 6, and 0.

4 × 1 = 44 × 6 = 244 × 11 = 444 × 16 = 644 × 21 = 844 × 26 = 104
4 × 2 = 84 × 7 = 284 × 12 = 484 × 17 = 684 × 22 = 884 × 27 = 108
4 × 3 = 124 × 8 = 324 × 13 = 524 × 18 = 724 × 23 = 924 × 28 = 112
4 × 4 = 164 × 9 = 364 × 14 = 564 × 19 = 764 × 24 = 964 × 29 = 116
4 × 5 = 204 × 10 = 404 × 15 = 604 × 20 = 804 × 25 = 1004 × 30 = 120

( b ) All multiples of 4 are also multiples of 2. It is because 4 is in the 2 times multiplication table, and all multiples of 4 are divisible by 2. 

The table below shows the multiples of 2, while the numbers in green boxes are multiples of 4.

( c ) All multiples of 4 are even numbers.

Are all numbers divisible by 4?

Not all numbers are divisible by 4. 

Numbers that can be divided by four precisely without any remainder are said to be divisible by 4. Hence, a number must be divisible by 4 for it to be a multiple of 4. 

Let us say, for example, 48 is divisible by 4 since 48 ÷ 4 is 12.
