### TESTS FOR DIVISIBILITY

Ms Hudson

Research the meaning of these words!?
• Division/Divisible
• Multiple/Multiples
• Even Number
• Sum
• Alternate
• Prime Number
• Composite Number
• Factors
• Difference
Division by 2 -
• All multiples of 2, including 2 itself, are called even numbers. An easy way to determine an even number is to tinspect that last digit. If it is a 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8, then the number is divisible by 2.
• Examples of multiples of 2 are 60000396, 498, 461357354, or 111300.
Division by 3 -
• To find multiples of 3, add the digits of the number and if the sum is divisible by 3 then the number is a multiple of 3.
• For example, the sum of the digits of 672 is 6 + 7 + 2 = 15. Since 15 is divisible by 3, we can say that 672 is a multiple of 3.
Division by 4 -
• For multiples of 4, only the last two digits in the number are considered. We need only consider the last two digits since 100 and multiples of 100 are divisible by 4.
• For example the number 576 is a multiple of 4 since 76 is divisible by 4. Examples of multiples of 4 are 432, 6302916, 3296 .
Division by 5 -
• If the last digit is 0 or 5 then the number is a multiple of 5.
• Examples of multiples of 5 are 3152905, 6690, 21375.
Division by 6 -
• To find the multiples of 6, we combine the tests for finding multiples of 2 and 3 because 6 = 2 x 3. This means that multiples of 6 must be even and the sum of the digits must be a multiple of 3.
• Consider 312576. First, the number is even. Second, the digits add to 24 (3 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 7 + 6 = 24). Therefore 312576 is a multiple of 6!
Division by 7 -
• Unfortunately there is no easy test for the divisibility of 7.
Division by 8 -
• Since 1000 and multiples of 1000 are divisible by 8, we need to only consider the last three digits of a number to discover if it is a multiple of 8.
• For example, 236 739 472 is a multiple of 8 since 472 is divisible by 8. Other example of multiples of 8 are 23528 and 40379232.
Division by 9 -
• The test for divisibility by 9 is similar to the test for divisibility by 3. Add the digits and if the sum is a multiple of 9 then the number is a multiple of 9.
• The number 3645 is a multiple of 9 since 3 + 6 + 4 + 5 = 18, which is a multiple of 9.
Division by 10 -
• If the last digit of the number is 0, then the number is a multiple of 10….
• Examples of multiples of 10 are 670, 2000, 4619270.

That should have been the easiest division rule of the lot!

Division by 11 -
• For multiples of 11, add alternate digits of the number, then add the remaining digits and if the difference between the two sums is obtained is 0, or a multiple of 11, then the number is a multiple of 11.
• For example, consider the number 7968323.

We see that 7 + 6 + 3 + 3 = 19 and 9 + 8 + 2 = 19, and the difference between these two sums is 0, hence 7968323 is a multiple of 11.

Division by 12 -
• The tests for divisibility by 12 requires the combined use of the tests for divisibility by 3 and 4. Any number divisible by 3 and 4, must be divisible by 12 because 3 x 4 = 12.
The same rules apply!
• In the same way, tests for divisibility by other composite numbers can be developed as combinations of these tests of the factors of the number;
• For multiples of 15, test for divisibility of 3 and 5
• For multiples of 18, test for divisibility of 2 and 9.
• Q1 – A test for division by 1 was not given. Why?
• Q2 – What is another name for a multiple of 2?
• Q3 – Explain why 2412 is divisible by 3?
• Q4 – Explain why 237 is not divisible by 5?
• Q5 – 237 is a multiple of which two numbers?
• Q6 – Which digits are inspected for multiples of 4?
• Q7 – Show that 2241 is not a prime number (i.e show that 2241 is divisible by some other number besides 1 and 2241).
• Q8 – A certain number is a multiple of 3 and 7. Of what other number, besides 1, must it also be a multiple?
• Q9 – Which do you think is the hardest test and why?
• Q10 – Write a sentence to explain how you would test a number for divisibility by 30?

### Whole Numbers

Divisibility Tests

A number is divisible by

Rule

If it is even (ends in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8)

2

3

If the sum of the digits is divisible by 3

4

If the number formed by the last 2 digits is divisible by 4

5

If it ends in 0 or 5

If it is divisible by 2 and 3

6

Factors

The factors of a number are all the numbers that divide exactly into it.

e.g: The factors of 15 are {1, 3, 5, 15}

Do you understand the difference between factors and multiples?

Note: the factors of a number include 1 and itself.

Multiples

The multiples of a number are obtained by multiplying it by the natural (counting) numbers.

example 1: The multiples of 10 are: 10, 20, 30, 40………

example 2:The multiples of 6 are:

It’s just like listing out your times tables

6,

12,

18,

24,

……………

Prime Numbers
• A prime number has exactly two factors, itself and 1.
• 2 is the smallest prime number,1 is not a prime number.
• Prime numbers are:{2, 3, 5, 7, 11, ………..}

I’m prime NZ beef

A Composite number is a natural number which has more than 2 factors. eg 9, 12 etc

Factor trees & Product of Primes

84

E.g. Write 84 as a product of prime factors

42

We circle the prime numbers at the end of each branch.

Don’t forget to write the answer!

84 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 7

= 22 x 3 x 7

example: Find the LCM of 12 and 30

Multiples of 12 are:

12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72........

Method 1:

Multiples of 30 are:

30, 60, 90, 120……..

Method 2:

The LCM of 12 and 30 is 60

LCM = 2 x 3 x 2 x 5 = 60

Index Notation

index/power/exponent

4 x 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 = 45

4 5 is read as “4 to the power of 5”

Two special names are

squared, e.g. 4 squared = 4 x 4 = 4 2

cubed, e.g. 2 cubed = 2 x 2 x 2 = 2 3

base

Powers on a calculator

Always enter negatives with brackets.

(-3)2 =

Calculators generally have

1. For x squared

2. For x cubed

3. For other powers

To calculate 4 9 we would key in:

Square Numbers & Square Roots

If you multiply a number by itself you get a squarenumberie 1 x 1 = 1; 2 x 2 = 4; 3 x 3 = 9; 4 x 4 = 16 etc

So 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36……. are square numbers

The square root of 25 is 5, because 5 x 5 = 25

The symbol for square root is

so

That’s what you’ll put into your calculator

It’s cool to be square

Order of Operations

Brackets

BIMDAS

Indices

When both xand ÷ occur in a problem work from left to right.

Multiplication

Division

Subtraction

When both + and - occur in a question work from left to right

Working left to right subtraction comes first

examples:

1) 8  6 + 2 

4

2) 16  3 x 4 

4

3) (16  3) x 4 =

52

4) 52 (2 x 32) + 4 ÷ 2 =

It is very important to understand

that it does make a difference if the

order is not performed correctly!!!!
