Multiples of 6 are the products of 6 and natural numbers. In other words, a multiple of 6 is a number that can be divided by 6 and leaves the remainder zero. Interestingly, multiples of 6 have a difference of 6 between each other. In this mini-lesson, we will calculate the multiples of 6 and learn interesting facts about these multiples. In this mini-lesson, let"s learn more about multiples of 6 in the tabular form with examples.

The product of 6 with any number is a multiple of 6.

6×1 = 6

6×2 = 12

6×3 = 18

We get successive multiples of 6 by skip counting.

If we skip count 128 times by 6, we will get the 128th multiple of 6. i.e., 128×6 = 768.

We obtain the first 20 multiples of 6 by finding the product of 6 and the first 20 natural numbers.

To understand the concept of finding multiples, let us take a few more examples.

**Important Notes:**

**Example 1 **

Andrea decides to make bracelets one by one in such a way that there are 6 beads in the first bracelet, 12 in the second, 18 in the third, and so on. How many beads would she need to make the 45th bracelet?

**Solution**

In the 4th bracelet, Andrea needs 4×6 = 24 beads

In the 8th bracelet, she needs 8×6 = 48 beads.

Hence for nth bracelet, she needs n×6 beads.

Here she looks for the 45th bracelet.

Thus, Andrea needs 45×6 = 270 beads.

**Example 2 **

Mike is playing a video game. For every jump over the obstacle, he collects 6 coins. He wants to know how many coins he would have collected if he crosses 112 such jumps. Can you help him to calculate the score?

**Solution**

In one jump, Mike gets 6 coins.

In 112 jumps, he would have collected 112×6 = 672 coins.

**Example 3 **

Mia gets a score of 6 points from 8 judges at each level. What will be her score at the end of the 66th level?
