Question:

Test the divisibility of each of the following numbers by 9:

(i) 327

(ii) 7524

(iii) 32022

(iv) 64302

(v) 89361

(vi) 14799

(vii) 66888

(viii) 30006

(ix) 33333

Solution:

A given number is divisible by 9 only when the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.

(i) 327
The sum of the digits is 3 + 2 + 7 = 12 which is not divisible by 9. So, 327 is not divisible by 9.

(ii) 7524
The sum of the digits is 7 + 5 + 2 + 4 = 18 which is divisible by 9. So, 7524 is divisible by 9.

(iii) 32022
The sum of the digits is 3 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 2 = 9 which is divisible by 9. So, 32022 is divisible by 9.

(iv) 64302
The sum of the digits is 6 + 4 + 3 + 0 + 2 = 15 which is not divisible by 9. So, 64302 is not divisible by 9.

(v) 89361
The sum of the digits is 8 + 9 + 3 + 6 + 1 = 27 which is divisible by 9. So, 89361 is divisible by 9.

(vi) 14799
The sum of the digits is 1 + 4 + 7 + 9 + 9 = 30 which is not divisible by 9. So, 14799 is not divisible by 9.

(vii) 66888
The sum of the digits is 6 + 6 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 36 which is divisible by 9. So, 66888 is divisible by 9.

(viii) 30006
The sum of the digits is 3 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 6 = 9 which is divisible by 9. So, 30006 is divisible by 9.

(ix) 33333
The sum of the digits is 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 15 which is not divisible by 9. So, 33333 is not divisible by 9.
