Testing divisibility of any number is really simple and easy. But if you don't know the simple trick on how to check the divisibility of a large digit number, you will definitely waste your precious time in your examination hall. For SSC, UPSC , PSC and other public examinations, all the questions will be simple so everyone can solve the question. But what matter is time. When you solve a quantitative aptitude question within one minute means you can solve 95% of questions within the given time limit. Here you will learn the divisibility of any numbers using numbers from 2 to 19 with simple calculations.

How to check the divisibility of a Number by 2

If the last digit of a number is even or zero the number is divisible by 2
Eg: Check whether 54876 is divisible by 2
Solution : The last digit of the number is "6", 6 is even so the number is divisible by 2

Divisibility of a number by 3

If sum of all digits of a number is divisible by 3, the number will be divisible by 3

Eg : Check Whether 35667 is divisible by 3
Solution : Sum of digits = 3+5+6+6+7 = 27
27 is divisible by 3, so the number 35667 is divisible by 3

Divisibility of a Number by 4

If the last two digits of a number is divisible by 4, the number will be divisible by 4 or two zeros(00)

Eg : Check whether 555364 is divisible by 4
Solution : the last two digit of the number is 64, which is divisible by 4
So the number 555364 is divisible by 4

Divisibility of a Number by 5

If the last digit is "5" or  "0" the number is divisible by five (5)

Eg: Check whether 12364795 is divisible by 5
Solution : The last digit is 5, so the number is divisible by 5

Divisibility of a number by 6

If the given number is divisible by both 2 and 3, the number will be divisible by 6

Eg: Check whether 32868 is divisible by 6
Solution : Last digit is 8, which is even. ie the number is divisible by 2
Sum of digits = 3+2+8+6+8 = 27, 27 is divisible by 3, so the number is divisible by 3
Since the number is divisible by both 2&3, the number is divisible by 6

Divisibility of a number by 7

Scroll down to the last section

Divisibility of a number by 8

If the last three digits are divisible by 8 or three zeros (000), the number will be divisible by 8

Eg: Check whether 364200 is divisible by 8
Solution : Last three digit in this number is 200, which is divisible by 8. ie the number is divisible by 8

Divisibility of a number by 9

If the sum of the digits in the number is divisible by 9, the number will be divisible by 9

Eg: Check whether 292914 is divisible by 9
Solution : The sum of the digits in the number = 2+9+2+9+1+4 = 27, 27 is divisible by 9, ie the number is divisible by 9

Divisibility of a number by 10

If the last digit in the number is zero, the number is divisible by 10

Eg: 548712540
Solution : Last digit in this number is zero, ie the number is divisible by 10

Divisibility of a number by 11

If the some of the alternate digits in a number are equal, then the number is divisible by 11

Eg: Check whether 3245682 is divisible by 11
Solution : Sum of alternate digits
ie 3+4+6+2 = 15
2+5+8 = 15
sum of alternate digits are equal, ie the number is divisible by 11

Divisibility of a number by 12

Divisibility of a number by 7,13,17 and 19

We have skipped checking divisibility of a number using 7 above, because the method used for checking the divisibility of a number by 7,13 and 17 are almost same. The method falls into the same category.
For the numbers 7,13 and 17 we have to find osculator and negative osculator

Osculator :

Eg: To find the osculatot of  59, find the nearest multiple of 10 of that number. ie 60 (50+1)
60 can be written as 6x10, means 6 is the oscullaotot
If the number is  41 , nearest multiple of 10 is 40
4x10 and negative osculator is 4

  • [message]
    • Important
      • The number you are adding or subtracting to get multiple of 10 should be +1 or -1

Divisibility of a number by 7

Find multiple of 7 more than 15, which is 21
Nearest multiple of 10 for 21 is 20 (21-1)
20 can be written as 2x10 and 7 is having negative osculator of 2 (-2)

Eg: Check whether 2009 is divisible by 7
Solution : 200 + (9*-2)  [ here -2 is negative osculator]
200-18 = 182
Again for 182, 18+(2*-2) = 18-4 = 14, 14 is divisible by 7 so 2009 is divisible by 7

Divisibility of a number by 13

Finding osculator : 13*3 = 39
nearest multiple of 10 is 40
40 can be written as 4x10 and oscullator is 4

Eg : Check whether 1573 is divisible by 13
Solution 1573 } 157+ (3*4) = 157+12 = 169, 169 is divisible by 13
or  169 } 16 + (9*4)  = 16+36 = 52,  52 is divisible by 13

Divisibility of a number by 17

Finding osculator : 17*3 = 51
51 can be written as 51-1 = 50 } -5 is osculator

Eg : Check whether 1904 is divisible by 17
1904 } 190+ (4*-5) = 170, 170 is divisible by 17
or 170 } 17+ (0*-5) = 17, 17 is divisible by 17
