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.**
