Can I divide this number by that number (without leaving a remainder) ?

There’s an easy way to tell! Use divisibility rules. DIVISIBILITY means one whole number (…-3, -2, -1, 0, +1,+2, +3…) can be divided by another whole number without leaving a remainder or (to put it another way) leaving a remainder of 0 .

DIVISIBILITY means

one whole number (…-3, -2, -1, 0, +1,+2, +3…)

can be divided by another whole number

without leaving a remainder or

(to put it another way)

leaving a remainder of 0 .

Divisibility Rules is always undefined . A number divided by 0 it ends in 0. 10 the sum of its digits is divisible by 9. 9 its last 3 digits (taken together as a three-digit number) are divisible by 8. 8 the original number without the last digit minus 2x last digit, repeated until the difference is 20 or less provides an answer (difference) divisible by 7. 7 it is even and the sum of its digits is divisible by 3. 6 it ends in 0 or 5. 5 its last two digits (viewed as a two-digit number) are divisible by 4. 4 the sum of its digits is divisible by 3. 3 its last digit is even: 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8. 2 all of the time. 1 If… A number can be divided by….

Can I divide this number by 1? YES! EVERY NUMBER can be divided by 1. In fact, the number 1 is quite magical , because when you divide any number by 1, the quotient (answer) is ALWAYS the number you started with. 328 ÷ 1 = 328 This works in multiplication too. 328 x 1 = 328 And this special number magic has a name. The Multiplicative Identity Property. (We’ll learn more about that later!)

What happens when I divide a number by 0? Remember fact families. Division 12 ÷ 4 = 3 or 12 = 3 4 Multiplication is the inverse (opposite). quotient x divisor = dividend x 4 = 12 or, working backwards, 12 = 4 x 3 BUT, when I try to divide with 0. 12 ÷ 0 or 12 = undefined not 0 0 quotient because, when I multiply (do the opposite or inverse). no quotient x 0 will = 12 and 0 x 0 = 0 not 12 There is no number in the whole world I can put in the quotient’s place as a factor that will equal 12, when I multiply it by 0. The product will always be 0. So, when I divide a number by 0, the result is called “undefined.”

Remember fact families.

Division

12 ÷ 4 = 3 or 12 = 3

4

Multiplication

is the inverse (opposite).

quotient x divisor = dividend

x 4 = 12

or, working backwards,

12 = 4 x 3

BUT, when I try to divide with 0.

12 ÷ 0 or 12 = undefined not 0

0 quotient

because, when I multiply (do the opposite or inverse).

no quotient x 0 will = 12 and

0 x 0 = 0 not 12

There is no number in the whole world I can put in the quotient’s place as a factor that will equal 12, when I multiply it by 0. The product will always be 0.

So, when I divide a number by 0,

the result is called “undefined.”

Congratulations! Now you know the short cut for determining if a number can be divided by another number! This will come in handy when you are finding prime and composite numbers, prime factors (prime factorization), greatest common factors (GCF), least common multiples (LCM), and need to find equivalent fractions.
