Divisibility RuleNumber Rule Example2
If last digit is 0,2,4,6, or 8 22, 30, 50, 68, 1024
3
If sum of digits is divisible by 3 123 is divisible by 3 since 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 (and 6is divisible by 3)
4
If number created by the last 2digits is divisible by 4864 is divisible by 4 since 64 is divisible by 4
5
If last digit is 0 or 5 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 2335
6
If divisible by 2 & 3 522 is divisible by 6 since it is divisible by 2 & 3
9
If sum of digits is divisible by 9 621 is divisible by 9 since 6 + 2 + 1 = 9 (and 9is divisible by 9)
10
If last digit is 0 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 5550
