### Subject: Basic Math

Are the following statements true? 1. 8921 is divisible by 3 2. 670 is divisible by 10 3. 24242 is divisible by 2

Answer : For the above statements, we need not divide the numbers and calculate the answer. We can apply divisibility tests as shown below: 1) If a number has to be completely divisible by 3, then the sum of the diets has to be divisible by 3. In this case, 8+9+2+1 = 20 , 20 cannot be divided by 3 => 8921 is not divisible by 3 So, the statement is false 2) For a number to be divisible by 10, the number should end with 0. Since 670 ends with 0, it is divisible by 10. Hence, the statement is true. 3) For a number to be completely divisible by 2, it should end with an even number. 24242 ends with 2 which is an even number. Hence, it is divisible by 2 and the statement is true.
