Not to an exact whole number, 1,234 / 12 = 102.83333

It is 12 because 12/12 = 1 and 12/6 = 2

Absolutely - any number that is divisible by 12 - is also divisible by 6 !

Yes, any even number will be divisible by "2." 4 divided by 2 = 2 6 divided by 2 = 3 8 divided by 2 = 4 10 divided by 2 = 5 ALL even numbers are divisible by 2. NO odd numbers will be divisble by two, EVER. 12 divided by 2 = 6

A number is divisible by 12 if it is divisible by 3 AND it is divisible by 4. Rule 1a (Divisibility by 3): Add up all the digits of the number. Is this number divisible by 3? Rule 1b (Divisibility by 4): Is the number formed by the last two digits of the original number (the number left after deleting the hundreds, thousands, millions etc) divisible by 4? If the answer to 1a is NO, then the number is not divisible by 3 and so not divisible by 12. In this case, obviously, rule 1b is irrelevant. If the answer to 1b is NO, then the number is not divisible by 4 and so not divisible by 12. If the answer to both 1a and 1b is YES, then the number is divisible by 12.

276 is a multiple of 12 that is divisible by 23.

yes 552 is divisible by 6 and the result is 92... to find out if a number is divisible by 6 then that number must be divisible by 2 and 3.. 1.If a number is divisble by three then the last digit must be divisible by 2 (so that the last digit must be 0,2,4,6,8) in this number the last digit is 2 so that it is divisible by 2 2.If a number is divisble by 3 then the sum of its digit must be divisible by 3. In this case the sum of the digits of 552 is 5+5+2= 12 and 12 is divisible by 3.... If this two rules fit in then that number is divisible by 6

Not always because 18 is divisible by 2 and 6 but not by 12

Not always because 30 is divisible by 2 and 6 but not by 12

Both are divisible by 1

The number has to be 450. The number is 3 digits, and it's divisible by 8.

Every number except zero is divisible by 4 but the result won't always necessarily be a whole number or a positive number. Numbers that are evenly divisible by 4 are called the multiples of 4. To find the multiples, simply count by 4: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, and they can go on forever

No. Consider 6 itself or 18.

One way to work it out in your head is to consider than 30 is divisible by 3, so you can ask if 140 is divisible by 30. It's not, since 14 is not divisible by 3. If the number was 129 or 159, both of those are divisible by three since both 12 and 15 are divisible by 3.

yes, but the answer will not come out a whole number
