A number that ends in 3 can't be a multiple of 4 because the 4 times table goes in a pattern, (e.g 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24.) If the number ends in either 0 2 4 6 8 then it couldbe a possible multiple of 4. It always ends in an even number. 3 is not an even number so it is not going to be the last number of a multiple of 4.

If a number is even, it's divisible by two. If the digits of a number add up to a multiple of 3, it's a multiple of 3. For example, 342 is divisible by 3 because 3 + 4 + 2 = 9 and 9 is divisible by 3.

The factors of 12 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. Those which are not multiples of 3 are: 1, 2, 4.

The least common multiple, or LCM, of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 is 60.

To find the least common multiple of 2, 3, and 4, factor them: 2 = 2 x 1 3 = 3 x 1 4 = 2 x 2 (Since one 2 has already been used to factor the number 2, only one 2 counts in the factors for the number 4.) The least common multiple of 2, 3, and 4 = 1 x 2 x 3 x 2 = 12.

Divisibility test for 3 : the sum of digits of the given number must be a multiple of 3 Divisibility test for 4 : the number formed by last 2 digits must be a multiple of 4.

If a number is divisible by 4, it also means that the same number is divisible by 2. But if the number ends in a 3, it can't be divisible by 2 and, to a further extent, can't be divisible by 4.
