Divisible by 9 is discussed below:

A number is divisible by 9, if the sum is a multiple of 9 or if the sum of its digits is divisible by 9.

Consider the following numbers which are divisible by 9, using the test of divisibility by 9:

99, 198, 171, 9990, 3411.**(i) 99**

Sum of the digits of 99 = 9 + 9 = 18, which is divisible by 9.

Hence, 99 is divisible by 9.**(ii) 198**

Sum of the digits of 198 = 1 + 9 + 8 = 18, which is divisible by 9.

Hence, 198 is divisible by 9.

**(iii) 171**

Sum of the digits of 171 = 1 + 7 + 1 = 9, which is divisible by 9.

Hence, 171 is divisible by 9.**(iv) 9990**

Sum of the digits of 9990 = 9 + 9 + 9+ 0 = 27, which is divisible by 9.

Hence, 9990 is divisible by 9.**(v) 3411**

Sum of the digits of 3411 = 3 + 4 + 1+ 1 = 9, which is divisible by 9.

Hence, 3411 is divisible by 9.

Consider the following numbers which are not divisible by 9, using the rules of divisibility by 9:

73, 237, 394, 1277, 1379.**(i) 73**

Sum of the digits of 73 = 7 + 3 = 10, which is not divisible by 9.

Hence, 73 is not divisible by 9.**(ii) 237**

Sum of the digits of 237 = 2 + 3 + 7 = 12, which is not divisible by 9.

Hence, 237 is not divisible by 9.**(iii) 394**

Sum of the digits of 394 = 3 + 9 + 4 = 16, which is not divisible by 9.

Hence, 394 is not divisible by 9.**(iv) 1277**

Sum of the digits of 1277 = 1 + 2 + 7 + 7 = 17, which is not divisible by 9.

Hence, 1277 is not divisible by 9.**(v) 1379**

Sum of the digits of 1379 = 1 + 3 + 7 + 9 = 20, which is not divisibleby 9.

Hence, 1379 is not divisible by 9.
