math

can somebody help me to check my answer

Identify if the first number is divisible by the second number, and if so, the reason why.
Is 216 divisible by 3?
A. No
B. Yes, because the sum of 2 + 1 + 6 = 9, which is divisible by 3.
C. Yes, because the last digit is 6, which is divisible by 3.
i am i think it is either b or c

  8. abc = 100 a + 10 b + c
    a + b + c = 9

    a b c / 3 = (100/3)a + (10/3 ) b + c/3

    = 331/3 a + 3 1/3 b + c/3
    = (33 a + 3 b) + (1/3)(a+b+c)
    well if a+b+c is divisible by 3, we are there

  9. bob and damon were trying to give you counter-examples

    any number whose digits sum is divisible by 9 , is divisible by 9 (and by 3)

  11. I hope you get it now

    16 and 26 end in 6. They do NOT work so c is NO
    However I just proved that b works

  13. NO, 26 is NOT divisible by 3
    8 * 3 = 24
    9 * 3 = 27

    note
    2+4 = 6 divisible by 3
    2+7 = 9, divisible by 3

    2 + 6 = 8 NOT divisible by 3
