Recognizing multiples of 4

Introduced in the Year 4, Year 5 curriculum as: "Identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of two numbers"

Multiples of 4 are numbers in the 4 times table.

A number is divisible by 4 if the last two digits are divisible by 4.

If you halve the tens and ones part of a number and the answer is even,

then it is a multiple of 4.

Example 1:

Is 56 a multiple of 4?

Take the 84 part: half of 84 is 42, which is even, so 4 is a multiple of 5684.

Example 2:

Are 433 and 4 multiples of 4?

433 is odd, so definitely not!

Half of 22 is 11, which is odd, so 422 is not a multiple of 4.
