Probably many answers, but for example 100 / 8 = 96 remainder 4

That's not possible. The largest single-digit number by which you might divide is 9. And, by definition, the remainder is always LESS than the number by which you divide. Thus, the largest remainder you can get, when you divide by 9, is 8.

Regardless of the dividend (the number being divided), no divisor can produce a remainder equal to, or greater than, itself..... dividing by 4 cannot result in a remainder of 5, for example, Therefore the only single-digit number which can return a remainder of 8 is 9. 35 ÷ 9 = 3 and remainder 8

2 x 6 + 0 = 12 2 x 1 + 2 = 4 4 is not [divisible by] 8, so 60 is not divisible by 8. (The remainder when 60 is divided by 8 is 4). To test divisibility by 8: Add together the hundreds digit multiplied by 4, the tens digit multiplied by 2 and the units (ones) digit. If this sum is divisible by 8 so is the original number. (Otherwise the remainder of this sum divided by 8 is the remainder when the original number is divided by 8.) If you repeat this sum on the sum until a single digit remains, then if that digit is 8, the original number is divisible by 8 otherwise it gives the remainder when the original number is divided by 8 (except if the single digit is 9, in which case the remainder is 9 - 8 = 1).

Not possible ! No single number will match allof your criteria ! Additionally - you've used the number 6 twice in your question - bothconditions can't be true !

6 + 4 + 6 = 16 1 + 6 = 7 → No; 646 is not divisible by 9 (there is a remainder of 7). ----------------------------------------- Only if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9 is the original number divisible by 9. Repeat the test on the sum until a single digit remains; only if this single digit is 9 is the original number divisible by 9, otherwise this single digit is the remainder when the original number is divided by 9.

No. To check if a number is divisible by 9 add the digits together and if the sum is divisible by 9 then so is the original number. The check can be used on the sum so keep summing until a single digit remains. If this digit is 9, then the number is divisible by 9, otherwise it gives the remainder when the number is divided by 9. (This single digit is known as the digital root of the number.) 104 → 1 + 0 + 4 = 5 5 is not 9, so 104 is not divisible by 9; it has a remainder of 5 when divided by 9
