no, it comes out to a decimal number so that means it is not divisible

To check if a number is divisible by 6 it must be divisible by both 2 and 3.

To check if a number is divisible by 2, if the last digit is even (ie one of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8) it is divisible by 2. Last digit is 0, so it is divisible by 2.

To check if a number is divisible by 3, add all the digits together and if the sum is divisible by 3 so is the original number. This can be repeated on the sum until a single digit remains in which case if it is 3, 6 or 9 then the original number is divisible by 3.

7960 → 7 + 9 + 6 + 0 = 22 (not divisible by 3 - know, or:)
22 → 2 + 2 = 4 (not 3, 6, 9 so not divisible by 3)

So 7960 is not divisible by 3, so 7960 is not divisible by 6.
