 # Multiples of 2

All numbers which can be divided by 2 are multiples of 2. We can also define a multiple as a number, we get, when 2 is multiplied by any natural number. For example, 2 multiplied by 9 is 18, hence 18 is multiple of 2. Some more multiples are given below:

 2 44 20 60 120

## What are Multiples of 2?

Any number that can be denoted in the form 2n where n is a natural number is a multiple of 2. So if two values p and q are there, we say that q is a multiple of p if ‘q = np’ for some natural number n.

For example, 80, 60, 20 and 16 are all multiples of 2 for the following reasons:

 80 = 2 x 40 60 = 2 x 30 20 = 2 x 10 16 = 2 x 8

These values are called as multiples as these values are obtained by adding or subtracting original value many times.
