A number is divisible by 8

If its last 3 digits are divisible by 8

 

Example

9216

Last 3 digits = 216

Divisible by 8 i.jpg

216 is divisible by 8

So, 9216 is divisible by 8

 

2104

Last 3 digits = 104

Divisible by 8 ii.jpg

Since 104 is divisible by 8

So 2104 is divisible by 8

 

2000

Last 3 digits = 000

          = 0

And 0 is divisible by any number

∴ 0 is divisible by 8   (as 0/8 = 0 Remainder is 0)

Thus, 2000 is divisible by 8

 

1416

Last 3 digits = 416

Divisible by 8 iii.jpg

Since 416 is divisible by 8

∴ 1416 is divisible by 8
