## Divisibility Test

**Divisibility test** is a test to find out whether a number can be divided completely by another number or not. Sometimes we have to divide more than three digit number by another number which make us confuse. At this time, to make division easy, we can use **divisibility test**.

If we divide one number by another and we get remainder zero; that means first number is

completely **divisible** by another and another number is **multiple** of first.

We shall take one example.

### We shall divide 24 by 6

Have a look-

24 is completely divisible by 6.

When we divide the number 24 by 6, we get-

- the quotient 4
- and remainder 0.

That is, we can say that the number-

- 24 is completely
**divisible**by 6. - 24 is a multiple of 6.
- and 6 is a factor of 24

### We shall divide 24 by 5

Have a look-

Now, If we divide the number 24 by 5, we get-

- the quotient 4
- and remainder 4

That is, we can say that the number-

- 24 is not completely divisible by 5
- 5 is not a factor of 24
- and 24 is not a multiple of 5.

### Multiples of a number

24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 are multiples of 6 that is these numbers are completely divisible by 6.

20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 are multiples of 5 so to find out which number divides the given

number completely without leaving a remainder that is the **divisibility**.

To find out the **divisibility** there are some methods to test without actually carrying out the

division, is called** Divisibility Test.**
