In skip counting by 8 we basically count numbers by skipping number 8 each time we move forward.

Below is the illustration which shows how we will move forward in the number line if we skip counting by Eight

To understand the above illustration, follow the following steps

**Step A**:

Start with number 0

**Step B:**

Move forward & skip the number by 8

⟹ 0 + 8 = 8

Now we are at number 8 on number line

**Step C**:

Again Move Forward by skipping number by 8 from current position

⟹ 8 + 8 = 16

We are standing at number 16 on number line

**Step D**:

Repeat Step C again and again

⟹ 16 + 8 = 24

⟹ 24 + 8 = 32

⟹ 32 + 8 = 40

The process continues repeatedly and we will get following numbers**0, 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 . . . . .**

I hope you have understood the basic idea of skip counting by 8’s using number line.
