Divisible by 9 is discussed below:
Consider the multiples of 9: 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99, .......
Number |
Sum of the Digits |
18 54 72 |
1 + 8 = 9 5 + 4 = 9 7 + 2 = 9 |
In each case it can be observed that the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.
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.
1. 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.
2. Consider the following numbers which are not divisible by 9, using the rules of divisibility by 9:
73, 237, 394, 1277, 1379.
Note: A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits is divisible by 9.
(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 divisible by 9.
Hence, 1379 is not divisible by 9.
3. Is 5328 divisible by 9?
Solution:
Sum of its digits = 5 + 3 + 2 + 8 = 18, divisible by 9.
Hence 5328 is divisible by 9.
We can verify that 5328 is divisible by 9 by actual division.
