# Write first five multiples of:

(a) 5 (b) 8 (c) 9

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of multiples to solve this.

(a) To get the first five multiples of 5, we need to multiply 5 by 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

5 × 1 = 5

5 × 2 = 10

5 × 3 = 15

5 × 4 = 20

5 × 5 = 25

Therefore, the first five multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25.

(b) To get the first five multiples of 8, we need to multiply 8 by 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

8 × 1 = 8

8 × 2 = 16

8 × 3 = 24

8 × 4 = 32

8 × 5 = 40

Therefore, the first five multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40.

(c) To get the first five multiples of 9, we need to multiply 9 by 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.

9 × 1 = 9

9 × 2 = 18

9 × 3 = 27

9 × 4 = 36

9 × 5 = 45

Therefore, the first five multiples of 9 are 9,18, 27, 36, and 45.
