Test for divisibility by 2 

 

 

All multiples of 2 are divisible by 2. That is 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26…
                                                                                                                                                                            All these numbers have 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 in the units place.

Test for divisibility by 2 is –

A number which has 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 in its unit place is divisible by 2.

We shall take some examples.

Which of the numbers 602, 834, 5670, 3786, 4029, 3875 are divisible by 2?

Of the given numbers, 602, 834, 5670, 3786, 4029, 3875 have the numbers 2, 4, 0 and 6
                                                                                                                                                                            in the units place. Therefore these numbers are divisible by 2. If we actually divide these

numbers by 2 we get remainder 0. But the numbers 4029 and 3875 do not have any

0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 in the units place. Therefore these numbers are not divisible by 2.
