7 Exciting Worksheets for Practicing Divisibility Rules Word Problems
In the following section, you will find X unique and exciting activities for practicing divisibility rules word problems. Each of the activities will require your skill at dividing different numbers. So, let’s conquer them all.
What Are the Divisibility Rules?
Divisibility rules are introduced as rules that help you work out whether one number is divisible by another number exactly and the division leaves a whole number without any remainder.
For small numbers, we can easily conclude divisibility. In the case of larger numbers, it is not possible to check the divisibility just by looking at the numbers. Thus, we require specific rules that can be employed for all the numbers to check for divisibility by another number.
Divisibility Rule of 2
A number is divisible by 2 if the last digit is an even number. The numbers with the last digits 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8 are called even numbers.
Examples: The numbers 14, 146, and 1680 are divisible by 2, because the last digits of these numbers are 4, 6, and 0, and they are even numbers.
Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 3
A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 3.
Examples: 381, 9996 are divisible by 3, because 3+8+1 = 12, and 9+9+9+6 = 33. Here, 12 and 33 are divisible by 3. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 4
A number is divisible by 4 if it is first an even number because 4 is an even number, so the multiple of 4 must be an even number. If the last digit is even, we should check the last two digits. After checking if the last two digits are divisible by 4, it is enough to be divisible by 4.
Examples: 144, 332, and 424 are divisible by 4, because they are first and foremost even numbers. The last four digits of the numbers 44, 32, and 24 are divisible by 4. Another way is to halve the number twice and see if the result is still a whole number: 124/2 = 62, 62/2 = 31, and 31 is a whole number. Thus divisible by 4. 50/2 = 25, 25/2 = 12.5, and 12.5 is not a whole number. Thus not divisible by 4. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 5
A number is divisible by 5 if the last digit of the number is 0 or 5. The multiples of 5 always end in 0 or 5.
Examples: 85, 165, and 290 are divisible by 5 because the last digits of the numbers are 5, 0. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 6
A number is divisible by 6 if the number is divisible by 2 and 3, it is divisible by 6. This means that the number divisible by 6 must be an even number, and the sum of the digits is divisible by 3.
Example: 456 is divisible by 6, because 456 is an even number, and the sum of the digits, 4+5+6=15, is divisible by 3. Thus, 456 is divisible by 6. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 9
A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by 9.
Example: 97524 is divisible by 9 because 9+7+5+2+4=27 is divisible by 9. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
Divisibility Rule of 10
A number is divisible by 10 if the last digit of the number is 0, so we can say all the numbers are divisible by 10. But all numbers divisible by 5 are not divisible by 10.
Examples: 20,510, and 6230 are divisible by 10 because the last digit of the numbers is 0. Now, read and solve the following word problems.
