A number is divisible by 8, by what other numbers will that number be divisible?
It should be multiples of 8.
Answer: If a number is divisible by 8, then it is also divisible by 2, and 4.
This can be explained by taking the example
For 2 digit number, 24 is divisible by 8 which is also a multiple of 8.
For 4 digit number, if we take 3624. Check whether the last three digits are divisible by 8 or not
624 which is divisible by 8 i.e.,8 x 78 = 624
The number 3624 is divisible by 8.
The number divisible by 8 is an even number, and it is divisible by 2.
Further, taking the last two digits of the number 3624, we observe that 24 is divisible by 4, and hence this number is also divisible by 4
Therefore, if a number is divisible by 8, then it is also divisible by 2, and 4.
