# Use divisibility rules for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables to solve problems

I can use divisibility rules for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables to solve problems.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- There are divisibility rules for 2, 4 and 8 which involve halving, halving twice and halving three times.
- Multiples of 10 have a zero in the ones and multiples of 5 have a 5 or a zero in the ones.
- Multiples of 3 have a digit sum of 3
- Multiples of 6 are even numbered multiples of 3

### Common misconception

Pupils may struggle to apply multiple divisibility rules simultaneously.

Have the rules visible, practise applying multiple rules step-by-step to ensure understanding and accuracy.

### Keywords

Divisible - divisibility is a number’s ability to be exactly divided by another number, leaving no remainder.

Divisibility rules - divisibility rules let you test if one number is divisible by another, without having to do too much calculation.
