Test for divisibility by 5

 

All multiples of 5 are divisible by 5 that is 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60……
All multiples of 5 have 0 or 5 in the units place.

So the test for divisibility by 5 is –

Number which has 0 or 5 in its units place is divisible by 5.

We shall take an example

Verify which of the numbers 365, 3250, 4132, 358, 2535 are divisible by 5.

We shall verify –

  1. Verifying whether 365 is divisible by 5 or not.

365

 

 

 

 

 

We get remainder 0 so 365 is divisible by 5.

 

  1. Verifying whether 3250 is divisible by 5 or not.

 3250

 

 

 

 

We get remainder 0 so 3250 is divisible by 5.

 

  1. Verifying whether 4132 is divisible by 5 or not.

4132

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we get remainder 2. So 4132 is not divisible by 5.
