No it is not. To check if a number is divisible by three - add all the digits of the number together (in this case they total 17). If the sum of the digits will divide by three then the original number will also. In this case 17 will not - so neither will the original number of 926. This rule also works for dividing a number by 9 !

Add up the digits. If that total is a multiple of 3, so is the original number.

No. A good test is to add up the digits of the number (5+3+2) and if that's divisible by three, then the original number is divisible by three.

3. The square root of a number is the number that when multiplied by itself, will give you the original number. Therefore, if you multiply the square root of three by itself, you will get three. A more clear example using whole numbers: the square root of nine times the square root of nine is three times three, which gives you nine, your original number.

If you add the digits in a number together and that number can be devided by three than the original number can be devided my three also. Ex. 273, 2+7+3=12. 12 can be devised by three so 273 can too.

So 25% of the new value is the newly-added 8. Therefore the original value is three times that, i.e. 24. This means that three 8s plus the other 8 - i.e. four 8s - equals 32.

Eight times larger.

let the number be x. So then just make it into an expression, 3x+5 that would translate to taking your original number, multiplying by three, then simply adding five

If that is the case, then three is a factor of the original number.
