Multiples of 4

The multiples of 4 are obtained by multiplying integers with 4. In this section, we will learn about the multiples of 4. For more details about multiples, see our page “Multiples of a Number“.

What are Multiples of 4?

A number is called a multiple of 4 if it is completely divisible by 4 with the remainder zero.

For example, 4 divides 16 completely, so by the above definition 16 is a multiple of 4. Similarly, 4, 8, 12, 24, 40, 400, etc. are examples of multiples of 4 as they are completely divisible 4.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 4 can be written as 4n for some integer n. So the set of multiples of 4 is given by

{4n: n is an integer}
