This is a worksheet which will provide few problems on the divisibility rule of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. 1. Check whether the following numbers are divisible by 2 or 3 or both? (i) 2562 (ii) 5693 (iii) 2201 (iv) 7480 (v) 5296 (vi) 4062 (vii) 4568 (viii) 1425 (ix) 1110
Here are few problems on the divisibility rules of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 which will help the learners in revising their concepts on the divisibility rules. 1. Check whether 3456 is divisible by 2? Solution: The last digit is an even number (i.e. 6) hence 3456 is
The divisibility rule of 10 states that If the last digit of a number is 0 then the given number is divisible by 10. For eg: Check whether 5400 is divisible by 10 or not? Solution: As the last digit of the number is 0 hence, 5400 is divisible by 10
This rule states that a number is divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits of the number is divisible by 9 For eg: Check whether 729 is divisible by 9 or not? Sum of the digits = 7 + 2 + 9 = 18 Now 18 is divisible by 9 hence, 729 is also divisible by 9 Here are few examples
The most common method to check whether a number is divisible by 8 is to divide and see if the quotient is a whole number or not? If the quotient is a whole number then the given number is divisible by 8. But there is an easier way to check by using the divisibility rule.
This rule states that if the difference between twice the digit at units place and the number formed from the remaining digits of the given number is divisible by 7 then the whole number is divisible by 7.
This topic on divisible by 6 will discuss about the divisibility rule of 6 and few example on the same. Divisibility rule of 6: A number is divisible by 6 if the prime factor of that is 2 & 3 is divisible by 6. For Example: 216 216 is divisible by 2 as the last digit 6 is
This topic on divisible by 5 will discuss on the divisibility rule of 5 and illustrate few example on the same. Divisibility Rule of 5: If a number ends with 0 or 5 then the number is divisible by 5. For Example: 550 Since the number ends with 0 hence the number is divisible
This topic i on divisibility rule of 4 and will provide examples on the same. Divisibility Rule of 4: If the last two digits of the number is divisible by 4 then the whole number is divisible by 4 For eg: 524 The last two digit of the number is 24 which is divisible by 4.
This topic is on the divisibility rule of 3 and few examples based on the topic. If the sum of the digits is divisible by 3 then the whole number is divisible by 3. For example 519 The sum of the digits = 5 + 1 + 9 = 15 15 is divisible by 3 hence 519 is also divisible by 3
This topic would deal with the divisibility rule of 2 and few sums on divisibility rule of 2. Numbers that are ending with 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 are divisible by 2. That means numbers ending with 0 or multiples of 2 are divisible by 2. We know that numbers which are multiples of
This topic deals with the properties of divisibility which will help us in doing our multiplication and division easy. These rules will help us to determine quickly the factors of certain number, the divisibility criteria of certain number and helps in overall strengthening
