Multiples of 13
Multiples of 13 are whole numbers. They are the product of n natural numbers and 13. In other words, we can say that the multiples of 13 are the numbers that can be divided by 13 without leaving any remainder. We can create n number of multiples of 13 just by multiplying 13 with n natural numbers. In this minilesson, we will calculate the multiples of 13 and we will learn some interesting facts about these multiples.

What Are the Multiples of 13?
Multiples of 13 are derived by multiplication of 13 with whole numbers. We can find out the multiples of 13 using its division facts as well. For example, division facts for the multiples of 13 are: 39 ÷ 13 = 3, 52 ÷ 13 = 4, 65 ÷ 13 = 5. This will give us multiples of 13 as well as factors of 13. We will consider only those number which are exactly divisible by 13 without leaving any remainder behind. Can you think of any other number with the help of which we can find multiples of 13? Let us try to derive multiples of 13 using multiples of 3. To obtain the multiples of 13, add natural numbers to the ten's digit of the multiples of 3. Hence, the first 10 multiples of 13 are obtained as follows: (1+0)3, (2+0)6, (3+0)9, (4+1)2, (5+1)5, (6+1)8, (7+2)1, (8+2)4, (9+2)7, (10+3)0 = 13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, 91, 104, 117, 130.
First 10 Multiples of 13  
13 × 1 = 13  13 × 6 = 78 
13 × 2 = 26  13 × 7 = 91 
13 × 3 = 39  13 × 8 = 104 
13 × 4 = 52  13 × 9 = 117 
13 × 5 = 65  13 × 10 = 130 
Hence, the first 10 multiples of 13 are 13, 26, 39, 52, 65, 78, 91, 104, 117, and 130.
First 20 Multiples of 13
The first 20 multiples of 13 are those numbers which we obtain as the result when we multiply natural numbers from 120 with 13. We just derived first 10 multiples of 13. Let us try same trick to derive multiples of 13 using multiples of 3 for natural numbers 1120. The first 20 multiples of 13 can also be obtained using a skip count method. The first 20 multiples of 13 are listed in the table below.
Multiples of 13 from 11 to 20  
13 × 11 = 143  13 × 16 = 208

Multiples of 13 Solved Examples

Example 1: If Jack presses the doorbell 1 time, it rings 5 times. Using the multiples of 13, find how many times does the bell ring when it is pressed 13 times?.
Solution:
Number of times the bell rings when pressed once = 5
Therefore, number of times the bell rings when pressed 13 times = 13 × 5 = 65
Hence, the bell will ring 65 times.
Here, 65 is the 5th multiple of 13. 
Example 2: Ria's mother has to pay the amount "13 less than 13 times of 13" in dollars. Using the multiples of 13, find how much is she required to pay?.
Solution:
13 less than 13 times of 13 = 13 × 13  13 = 156
Hence, Ria's mother needs to pay $156.
