In addition to the above posts,there is one more funda for checking out the divisibility for 7,11 and
13

suppose if we have to check wheather a number is divisible by 7 , 11 or 13 .....

See start from right and keep on segregating 3 digits at a time and give them "+ve" sign and "-ve"
alternatively ........ and solve that ... And if the number eventually left is divisible by 7, 11 or 13 ..
then the whole number itself is divisible by the corresponding number

if we have to check wheather it is divisible by 7 , 11 or 13 .....

See start from right and keep on segregating 3 digits at a time and give
them "+ve" sign and "-ve" alternatively ........ and solve that ... And if the
number eventually left is divisible by 7, 11 or 13 .. then the whole number
itself is divisible by the corresponding number . for ex .. here

Start from right .. mind it !!

+668 - 444 + 123 -123 = 224

Now 224 is divisible by 7 but not by 11 or 13 .... That means number


123123444668 is divisible by 7 but not by 11 or 13 .
