Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by two? Could the last digit be a zero, eight, six, four, or two? If it is a zero, eight, six, four, or two, yes this integer’s divisible by two.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by three? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by three? Find the sum of the digits; is this sum divisible by three? If this sum is a multiple of three, yes this integer’s divisible by three.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by four? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by four? Do the last two digits form an integer divisible by four? If these two digits form a multiple of four, yes this integer’s divisible by four.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by five? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by five? Could the last digit be equal to a zero or five? If the last digit is a zero or five, yes this integer’s divisible by five.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by six? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by six? What if this integer is divisible by two and three? If this integer is divisible by these, yes this integer’s divisible by six.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by nine? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by nine? Find the sum of the digits; is this sum divisible by nine? If this sum is a multiple of nine, yes this integer’s divisible by nine.**The Divisibility Song**Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by ten? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by ten? Could the last digit be equal to only zero? If the last digit equals a zero, yes this integer’s divisible by ten.**The Divisibility Song**(Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by eight? Oh I want to know, yes I want to know, is this integer divisible by eight? Do the last three digits form an integer divisible by eight?
