Divisibility Rule[change | change source]

  • To test if an integer is divisible by 7 or not,
  1. Take off the last digit and multiply it by 2.
  2. Subtract the root number from the product .[1]
  3. Repeat the second step again and again until it is clearly that the number is divisible by 7 or not.



  1. 5×2=10, 91878-10=91868
  2. 8×2=16, 9186-16=9170
  3. 0×2=0, 917-0=917
  4. 7×2=14, 91-14=77

77 is divisible by 7, so the original number 918785 is also divisible by 7.

Proof: Pretend is the root number and is the last digit. Then is the whole number. If the whole number () is divisible by 7, is also a multiple of 7. And also divide 7. That proves is divisible seven, since 3 and 6 are both multiples of 3. So is also divisible by 7.
