Number Divisibility Rules

Divisibility Rules of whether a number is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10

2Last digit in the number is even.14, 102, 118, 560
all end in even numbers, so all are divisible by 2.
3Sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3.
The sum of the digits of 396 is 3+9+6 = 18 which is
divisible by 3, so 396 is divisible by 3.
4Number formed by the last 2 digits is divisible by 4.Last 2 digits of 1424 is 24, which is divisible by
4, so 1424 is divisible by 4.
5Last digit is 0 or 535, 90, 475
6Number is even and divisible by 3.144 is even and is divisible by 3 (sum of digits 1+4+4 = 9, divisible by 3), so 144 is divisible by 6.
8Last 3 digits divisible by 8 or Last 3 digit is 000Last 3 digits of 83400 is 400 which is divisible by 8. Last 3 digits of 1000 is 000 hence it is divisible by 8
9Sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 9.Sum of the digits of 1485 is 1+4+8+5 = 18
which is divisible by 9, so 1485 is divisible by 9
10Last digit is 090, 120, 680
