The rule of thumb is that if the sum of the digits of the number equals a number that is divisible by 3, then the number is divisible by 3.

For example,

372: 3+7+2 = 12, which is a multiple of 3 (3x4=12)

So, 3 is a factor of 372

(which is true, as 3 x 124 = 372).

124: 1+2+4 = 7, which is not a multiple of 3

So, 3 is not a factor of 124

(which is true, as 124 is not evenly divisible by 3, 124/3 = 41.33333)

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

If the ............. of the digits for a whole number is divisible by three then the whole number is also divisible by three?

You would fill in the blank with the word sum, which means that you add each of the digits of the number. If that sum is divisible by three then the number is divisible by 3.

Is 10000 divisible by three?

No. If a number is divisible by three, the sum of its digits will be divisible by three. Obviously, the sum of the digits of 10000 is 1, and 1 is not divisible by 3, so 10000 is not divisible by 3.


Is this fact true A whole number is divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 3?

True fact.


What is a quick way to determine if 3 is a factor of a number?

What is a number n where if the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by n, then the number itself is divisible by n?

(The assumes that "the number" in the question is not n, although if they are they same number, this is still true.) "If the sum of the digits of the number is divisible by n, then the number itself is divisible by n" is true if n is 3 or if n is 9.


The sum of 3 consective numbers is divisible by 3?

What is the divisible rule for 9?

If the number is divisible by 3 then its divisible by 9. If you forgot what the divisble rule for three this is how, add up all the numbers then whatever the sum is and if the sum can go into three then its divisible by 3 and 9.


What is the divisibility rule for 3?

A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is a multiple of 3. For example, 27 = 2 + 7 = 9/3 = 3. Therefore, 27 is divisible by 3.If the sum of the digits of the number in question is divisible by three, the whole number is divisible by three.


Is 153 a composite number?

It's divisible by three, since the sum of its digits is divisible by three. So it's composite.


How would you reconise a multiple of three?

if the number is a 2 or more diget number, you add up all of the numbers in the number and when you have the sum, if the sum is divisible by 3 , the whole number is divisible by three EX. 123=6, 6 is divisible by 3 so 123 is divisible by three 447=15 is divisible by 3 so 447 is divisible by 3 989=26 is *NOT* divisible by 3 so 989 is not divisible by three this truly does work for every single number


How do we know if a number is divisible by 3?
