Divisibility Rules Making friends with fractions

The rule for 2 2 goes into every even number….. Even numbers are numbers that end in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8

The rule for 3 3 will go into a number if 3 goes into the sum of the digits Example: 1,266 The sum of the digits is 1 + 2 + 6 + 6 = 15 3 goes into 15….so 3 goes into 1,266

The rule for 4 If 4 goes into the last two digits it goes into the number Example: 240…..4 goes into 40 so 4 goes into 240

The rule for 5 5 goes into any number that ends in 0 or 5

The rule for 6 If 2 and 3 go into a number, so does 6 Example: 132….2 goes into it because it is even….3 goes into it because the sum of the digits is 6….6 goes into it because 2 and 3 do

The rule for 7 Take the last digit and double it….subtract that from the remaining digits…continue until you get a number that is divisible by 7 Example: 133…take the last digit and double it…..3 x 2 = 6 13 – 6 = 7….7 goes into 7 so 7 goes into 133.

The rule for 8 Not on our list, because its a rotten rule! If 8 goes into the last 3 digits, it goes into the number.

The rule for 9 Same as the rule for 3…..if 9 goes into the sum of the digits it goes into the number. Example: 1,233….the sum of the digits is 9…9 goes into 9 so 9 goes into 1,233

The rule for 10 10 goes into any number that ends in 0

What will divide evenly into: 222 224 1,200 7,011 156 440 812
