To be divisible by 2 the number must be even, that is its last digit must be 2, 4, 6, 8, or 0; the last digit of 26 is 6 which is one of {2, 4, 6, 8, 0} so 26 is even and divisible by 2.

To be divisible by 3 sum the digits of the number; if this sum is divisible by 3 then the original number is divisible by 3. The test can be repeated on the sum until a single digit remains, in which case if this single digit is 3, 6, or 9 then the original number is divisible by 3; For 26: 2 + 6 = 8 which is not one of {3, 6, 9} so 26 is not divisible by 3.

To be divisible by 5 the last digit must be a 0 or 5; the last digit of 26 is a 6 which is not 0 nor 5, so 26 is not divisible by 5.

To be divisible by 9 sum the digits of the number; if this sum is divisible by 9 then the original number is divisible by 9. The test can be repeated on the sum until a single digit remains, in which case if this single digit is 9 then the original number is divisible by 9; For 26: 2 + 6 = 8 which is not 9 so 26 is not divisible by 9.

26 is divisible by 2 but not divisible by 3, 5 nor 9.
