    A number is divisible by 2 when the number ends with 0,2,4,6,8.
  • Rule for 3
    If the sum of digit is divisible by 3 than the number is divisible by 3.

    If the last two digit is divisible by 4, than the number is divisible by 4.
  • Rule for 5
    Number is divisible by 5 if the last digit is 0 or 5.
  • Rule for 6
    A number is divisible by if number is divisible by 2 and 3.
  • Rule for 7 : Double the last digit and subtract it from the remaining leading truncated number to check if the result is divisible by 7 until no further division is possible
  • Rule for 8
    If the last 3 number is divisible by 8 than the number is divisible by 8.
  • Rule for 9
    Same as divisibility of 3 but sum of digits is divide by 9 in place of 3
  • Rule for 10
    If the last digit is 0 than the number is divisible by 10.
  • Rule for 25

          Any value whose last two numbers are either 0 or are the multiples of 25 is absolutely divisible by 25.
