## Divisibility Principle of 8

 Divisibility Principle of 10 Divisibility Principle of 11 Divisibility Principles of 2 Divisibility Principle of 3 Divisibility Principle of 4 Divisibility Principle of 5 Divisibility Principle of 6 Divisibility Principle of 8 Divisibility Principle of 9 More Divisibility Rules

Definition :-
The Divisibility Principle of 8 is somewhat similar to Divisibility Principle of 4.
A given number (with 4 or more digits) is divisible by 8, if the last three digits of given number(i.e. one's digit, ten's digit and hundred digit) is divisible by 8, then the given number is also divisible by 8.

Note :- The Divisibility Principle of 8 Applies to a Number Having Four or More Digits.

Following example will further help to understand The Divisibility Principle of 8:-

Example 1 = Is 7648 divisible by 8 ?
Answer = In the given number 7648,
the last three digits(i.e. one's digit, ten's digit and hundred digit) is 648,
Since 648 is divisible by 8. So, the given number 7648 is also divisible by 8.

Example 2 = Is 2460 divisible by 8 ?
Answer = In the given number 2460,
the last three digits(i.e. one's digit, ten's digit and hundred digit) is 460,
Since 460 is not divisible by 8. So, the given number 2460 is also not divisible by 8.

Example 3 = Is 60816 divisible by 8 ?
Answer = In the given number 60816,
the last three digits(i.e. one's digit, ten's digit and hundred digit) is 816,
Since 816 is divisible by 8. So, the given number 60816 is also divisible by 8.

Example 4 = Is 58382 divisible by 8 ?
Answer = In the given number 58382,
the last three digits(i.e. one's digit, ten's digit and hundred digit) is 382,
Since 382 is not divisible by 8. So, the given number 58382 is also not divisible by 8.
