Definition of Multiples of 500
Multiples of 500 are all the numbers that when divided by 500 equal an integer. Each of the multiples of 500 are called a multiple. A multiple of 500 is created by multiplying 500 by an integer.
Therefore, to create a list of multiples of 500, you start with 1 multiplied by 500, then 2 multiplied by 500, then 3 multiplied by 500, and so on for as long as you want. Thus, the list of the first five multiples of 500 is 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2500. To see a larger list of multiples of 500, see the printable image of Multiples of 500 further down on this page. We also have a category where you can choose any nth multiple of 500.
Least Common Multiple of 500 and ...
A Least Common Multiple (LCM) is the lowest multiple that two or more numbers have in common. This is also called the smallest common multiple or lowest common multiple and is useful to know when you are adding our subtracting fractions. Enter one or more numbers below (500 is already entered) to find the LCM.

Multiples of 500 vs Factors of 500
500 is a multiple of 500 and a factor of 500, but that is where the similarities end. All postive multiples of 500 are 500 or greater than 500. All positive factors of 500 are 500 or less than 500.
Below is the beginning list of multiples of 500 and the factors of 500 so you can compare:
Multiples of 500: 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, etc.
Factors of 500: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100, 125, 250, 500
As you can see, the multiples of 500 are all the numbers that you can divide by 500 to get a whole number. The factors of 500, on the other hand, are all the whole numbers that you can multiply by another whole number to get 500.
It's also interesting to note that if a number (x) is a factor of 500, then 500 will also be a multiple of that number (x).
Multiples of 500 vs Divisors of 500
The divisors of 500 are all the integers that 500 can be divided by evenly. Below is a list of the divisors of 500.
Divisors of 500: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100, 125, 250, 500
The interesting thing to note here is that if you take any multiple of 500 and divide it by a divisor of 500, you will see that the quotient is an integer.
Multiples of 500 Table
