# What digits can be in the one's place of a number that has 5 as a factor

A divisibility rule is a technique that determines if a number can be completely divided by another.

## Answer: The digits present in the one's place of a number that has a factor of 5 are 0 and 5.

Let's look into the solution below.

**Explanation:**

Multiples of 5 are given as : 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50.....

We can therefore make an important observation that all the multiples of 5 have 0 and 5 as its unit digit at alternative positions. This cycle keeps continuing.

A number is said to be completely divisible by 5 if the remainder is zero and the quotient is a whole number.

Hence, the divisibility rule of 5 states that if the digit on the units place, that is, the last digit of a given number is 5 or 0, then such a number is divisible by 5

### Thus, the digits present in the one's place of a number that has a factor 5 are 0 and 5.
