This section will covering Aptitude Questions on Number System Divisibility. Problems on this topic appear consistently across all competitive exams, Job interviews and GRE entrance exams.

Few important facts in regard to solving Questions on number system are as —

  • A number is divisible by 2 if its unit digit is any of 0,2,4,6,8
  • A number is divisible by 3 only when sum of its digits is divisible by 3. For eg number 129, sum of its digits is 1+2+9 = 12 which is divisible by 3.
  • A number is divisible by 9 only when the sum of its digits is divisible by 9. For eg number 24651, sum of its digit is 18 which is divisible by 9.
  • A number is divisible by 4 if if the number formed by its last 2 digits is divisible by 4.
