The product of two numbers is called a multiple. The product of 50 with other numbers are the multiples of 50. The first few multiples of 50 are 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, and so on. We get successive multiples of 50 by skip counting.

The multiples of 50 are the numbers that are generated when 50 is multiplied by any natural number. We obtain the first 20 multiples of 50 by finding the product of 50 and the first 20 natural numbers. 

First 20 Multiples of 50
50 × 1 = 5050 × 11 = 550
50 × 2 = 10050 × 12 = 600
50 × 3 = 15050 × 13 = 650
50 × 4 = 20050 × 14 = 700
50 × 5 = 25050 × 15 = 750
50 × 6 = 30050 × 16 = 800
50 × 7 = 35050 × 17 = 850
50 × 8 = 40050 × 18 = 900
50 × 9 = 45050 × 19 = 950
50 × 10 = 50050 × 20 = 1000

The smallest multiple of every number is the number itself, that is, 50 × 1 = 50.If a number is a multiple of 50, it will have its last digit as 0 or 5.A multiple is termed to be a common multiple if it is common for two or more numbers. Example: 50 × 2 = 100, 2 × 50 = 100; 100 is a common multiple of 50 and 2.The number of multiples for a given number is infinite.

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


Olivia visits Central park every 50 days and Charles visits the same place every 20 days. Suppose they both are together on the same day today, when will they next visit on the same day?

Example 1: Help James to calculate 50 times 8 plus 200

Solution: Mathematically 50 times 8 plus 200 = 50 × 8 + 200. Therefore, 50 × 8 + 200 = 400+200 = 600


Example 2: David is playing a card game. For every correct card over an obstacle, he collects 50 points. He wants to know how many points he would have collected if he wins 120 times. Can you help him calculate the score?

Solution:

Number of points collected by David for 1 correct card = 50Therefore, the number of points collected by David for 120 correct cards = 50 × 120= 6000 points

What is the sum of the first five multiples of 50? 

The first five multiples of 5 are 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250. The sum of the first five multiples of 50 is 750.

What is the least common multiple of 50 and 60?

The least common multiple of 50 and 60 can be calculated by: (50 × 60)/GCF(50,60). Here GCF(50,60) is the greatest common factor of 50 and 60.GCF(50, 60) = 10LCM(50, 60) = (50 × 60)/GCF(50, 60) = 3000/12 = 300
