# Multiples of 8

The **multiples of 8** are 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80… and so on. It is a sequence where the difference between each next number and the preceding number, i.e. two consecutive results, is 8.

Multiples are the numbers that give products of any number multiplied by other natural numbers. There is a difference between factors and multiples, which you can learn here. However, 8 is a factor of 8, and also 8 is a multiple of 8.

## What are Multiples of 8?

The **multiples of 8** are the numbers that are generated when 8 is multiplied by any natural number. That means any number that can be expressed in the form of 8n where n is an integer is a multiple of 8. As we know, if two values, p and q, are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if q = np for some integer n.

Some of the multiples of 8 include the following.

**8, 16, 24, 32,….., 72, 80, 88,….**

Thus, as per the definition given above, the multiple of 8 is obtained by multiplying some integer with 8.

For example, 48, 56, 64 and 96 are all multiples of 8 for the following reasons.

8 × 6 = 48 | 8 multiplied by 6 to get 48 |

8 × 7 = 56 | 8 multiplied by 7 to get 56 |

8 × 8 = 64 | 8 multiplied by 8 to get 64 |

8 × 12 = 96 | 8 multiplied by 12 to get 96 |

We can also find the multiples through the repeated addition of a number as many times as required. For example, the first five multiples of 8 can be written as:

8 × 1 = 8

8 × 2 = 16 or 8 + 8 = 16 {here 8 is added for twice}

8 × 3 = 24 or 8 + 8 + 8 = 24 {here 8 is added for thrice}

8 × 4 = 32 or 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 32

8 × 5 = 40 or 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 40

Similarly, we write several multiples of the given numbers.

### What is the 5th multiple of 8?

To get the fifth multiple of 8, we have to multiply 8 by 5 or add the number five times.

Therefore, the fifth multiple of 8 is 8 x 5 = 40 or 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 40.
