Best Answer

It is divisible by 3 but not divisible by 9.

To test for divisibility by 3, sum the digits and if the sum is divisible by 3 then so is the original number; the test can be repeated ion the sum, so keep summing until a single digit remains and if this single digit is 3, 6 or 9, then the original number is divisible by 3:

5673 → 5 + 6 + 7 + 3 = 21 → 2 + 1 = 3 which is one of {3, 6, 9} so 5673 is divisible by 3.

To test for divisibility by 9, sum the digits and if the sum is divisible by 9 then so is the original number; the test can be repeated ion the sum, so keep summing until a single digit remains(this single digit is known as the digital root of the number) and if this single digit is 9, then the original number is divisible by 9:

5673 → 5 + 6 + 7 + 3 = 21 → 2 + 1 = 3 which is not 9 so 5673 is not divisible by 9.
