To be divisible by a number, the result of the division by that number must be a whole number.

Assuming 17.5 is divisible by 8, then 8 (a whole number) multiplied by another whole number (as required above) needs to make 17.5

There are no two whole numbers that multiply together to form a non-whole number; thus 17.5 is not divisible by 8.

17.5 can be divided by 8 to give 2.1875 which is not a whole number.
