# Multiples of 8

The multiples of 8 are obtained by multiplying integers with 8. In this section, we will learn about the multiples of 8. For more details about multiples, see our page “Multiples of a Number“.

#### What are Multiples of 8?

A number is called a multiple of 8 if it is completely divisible by 8 with the remainder zero.

For example, 8 divides 16 completely, so by the definition 16 is a multiple of 8. Similarly, 8, 16, 24, 32, 80, 800, etc. are all examples of multiples of 8 as they are completely divisible 8.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 8 can be written as 8n for some integer n. So the set of multiples is given by

{8n: n is an integer}

#### First 10 Multiples of 8

The first 10 multiples of 8 are as follows:

 8×1=8 8×2=16 8×3=24 8×4=32 8×5=40 8×6=48 8×7=56 8×8=64 8×9=72 8×10=80

So we have:

 The first 10 multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72 and 80.

 8×1=8 8×2=16 8×3=24 8×4=32 8×5=40 8×6=48 8×7=56 8×8=64 8×9=72 8×10=80 8×11=88 8×12=96 8×13=104 8×14=112 8×15=120 8×16=128 8×17=136 8×18=144 8×19=152 8×20=160

So we have:

 The first 20 multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80, 88, 96, 104, 112, 120, 128, 136, 144, 152 and 160.

#### Properties of Multiples of 8

• Multiples of 8 are always even numbers.

• Multiples of 8 always end with either 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.

• If a number ends with 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 then the number is not a multiple of 8.
