Description 



Divisible: One number is divisible by another number if the second number divides "evenly" into the first. That is, when the first number is divided by the second number, there is a remainder of zero. 
Divisible
Suppose you want to share your 24 pieces of candy with 3
people. If you give each person 8 pieces (an equal share of the candy), then
there are no pieces of candy left. Thus, the 24 pieces of candy can be evenly
divided with each person receiving 8 pieces.
We say 24 is divisible by 3, meaning the remainder is zero when
24 is divided by 3. The number 3 can be called a divisor of 24. The
result of dividing 24 by 3 is 8 and is called the quotient.
Here are some divisibility
rules.
Examples of Divisibility
121 ÷ 11 = 11 with zero remainder. So, 121 is divisible by 11.
The number 11 is a divisor of 121 while the result of dividing 121 by 11
is 11 and is called the quotient.
40 ÷ 5 = 8 with zero remainder. So 40 is divisible by 5.
Also, 40 is divisible by 8. The number 5 is called a divisor of 40. The
number 8 is called the quotient.
Nonexample of Divisibility
37 ÷ 4 = 9 with remainder of 1. Here, we divide by 4, so
4 is called the divisor, however, 37 is not divisible by 4 because
the remainder is 1 (not zero.) The number 9 R1 (or or 9.25) is called
the quotient.
Is it divisible?
This script will check to see if the first number is divisible by the second.
