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 –

By verification, it is clear that the number **86124 is divisible by 6**.
