How to use our divisibility calculator

Our calculator will tell you three things for whichever two values that you enter.

 

1. If one number is divisible by another number

2. The result of the division (this figure is called the quotient)

3. All of the numbers that a number is divisible by

 

When entering your calculation you will need to input a dividend and divisor.

 

The dividend is the number that you want to divide and the divisor is the number that it is being divided by. The result of this calculation is called the quotient.

What does divisible mean?

In mathematics, a number is divisible if it can be evenly divided by another number, without remainder.

For example 30 is divisible by 15 because 30 ÷ 15 = 2.

Using the same rule as above, 30 is also divisible by 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10 and 30 because the result of the division is an integer (a whole positive number).

Divisibility in everyday life

There are lots of practical uses to knowing if a number is divisible, such as problem solving, working out which product is the best value for money and being able to divide food and snacks equally between friends and family.

Let’s say you have a pizza that has been cut in to 12 slices and you want to know how many people you can share it with so they all get an equal number of slices.

Divisibility can help us work this out!

 

Putting this scenario in to the calculator gives us the following answer…

We know that 12 is divisible by 1 so we could give 12 people 1 slice of pizza.

12 is also divisible by 2, meaning 6 friends could each enjoy 2 slices of pizza.

4 people could all share 3 slices of pizza or 3 friends could all eat 4 slices.

Finally, 2 friends could get to enjoy 6 slices of pizza (unless you want to keep all 12 slices for yourself!)
