In this page divisibility by 6 we are going to see how to check whether the given number is divisible by 6 or not. If a number is divisible by 2 and 3, it is divisible by 6. All the even numbers are divisible by 2. Hence all even number which are divisible by 3 is divisible by 6.

Here in this page 'Divisibility by 6' we will see how the given numbers are divisible by 6

**Example 1:**

Test whether 5832 is divisible by 6?

Here the given number is an even number. Hence it is divisible by 2. Now we have to check whether it is divisible by 3 or not for that we have to find the sum of the digits ** 5 + 8 + 3 + 2 = 18 **.

The sum of the digits is divisible by 3. Therefore the given number 5832 is divisible by 3.

**Example 2:**

Test whether 4538 is divisible by 6?

It is an even number. Hence it is divisible by 2. The sum of the digits ** 4 + 5 + 3 + 8 = 20 **.

The sum of the digits is not divisible by 3. Therefore the given number 4538 is not divisible by 6.

**Example 3:**

Test whether 1056 is divisible by 6?

It is an even number. Hence it is divisible by 2. The sum of the digits ** 1 + 0 + 5 + 6 = 12 **.

The sum of the digits is divisible by 3. Therefore the given number 1056 is divisible by 6.
