They cover different maths topics which can:

Entry requirements for Multiply courses
You can start a Multiply course if you’re 19 or over and you do not have at least a grade 4 (previously grade C) in GCSE maths or qualifications at the same level.
If you think Multiply could help you get a job or access higher levels or training, you might be eligible regardless of the qualification you have.
Qualification you’ll earn
You might be able to get a qualification depending on the course provider.
You can read the details for each individual course to check if you'll get a qualification at the end.
A Multiply course can also help you get a qualification, such as a Functional Skills Qualification or GCSE.
Check your numeracy level
You can take the Multiply quiz to get an idea of your current maths skills.
The short quiz has 6 multiple choice numeracy questions that will take you around 5 minutes to complete.
You can use a calculator if you want and the quiz will explain how to work out the correct answer if you’re not sure.
Finding numeracy courses
If you're in England, you can search for numeracy courses available on the National Careers Service website.
The courses are run by employers, community groups, charities and colleges.
