What Are the Multiples of 50?
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.
First 20 Multiples of 50
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 = 50  50 × 11 = 550 
50 × 2 = 100  50 × 12 = 600 
50 × 3 = 150  50 × 13 = 650 
50 × 4 = 200  50 × 14 = 700 
50 × 5 = 250  50 × 15 = 750 
50 × 6 = 300  50 × 16 = 800 
50 × 7 = 350  50 × 17 = 850 
50 × 8 = 400  50 × 18 = 900 
50 × 9 = 450  50 × 19 = 950 
50 × 10 = 500  50 × 20 = 1000 
Important Notes:
 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.

 Multiples of 5  The first five multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20, 25
 Multiples of 25  The first five multiples of 25 are 25, 50, 75, 100, and 125.
 Multiples of 75  The first five multiples of 75 are 75, 150, 225, 300, and 375.
Challenging Questions:
 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?
Multiples of 50 Solved Examples

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 = 50
Therefore, the number of points collected by David for 120 correct cards = 50 × 120= 6000 points
FAQs on Multiples of 50
How do you find the multiples of 50?
We can find the multiples of 50 by either skip counting or by using the multiplication table of 50.
What are the first few multiples of 50?
The first few multiples of 50 are 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, and so on.
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) = 10
LCM(50, 60) = (50 × 60)/GCF(50, 60) = 3000/12 = 300
