Test for divisibility by 6

 

 

We have seen test for divisibility by 2 and test for divisibility by 3.

Here for test for divisibility by 6 we have to verify whether that number is divisible by 2 and 3.

The test for divisibility by 6 is –

If a number is divisible by 2 as well as 3, then that number is divisible by 6.

We shall take a number and verify whether it is divisible by 6 or not.

Have a look –

We have a number 86124

The above number  has 4 in its units place. Therefore this number is divisible by 2.

The sum of digits in the number  is 8 + 6 +1+ 2 + 4 = 21.

 21 is divisible by 3.

Thus the number 86124 is divisible by both 2 and 3. So the number 86124 is divisible by 6.

Let us verify –

86124
