### Q: How can we determine if a number is a multiple of 9?

To check if a number is a multiple of 9, we need to find the sum of its digits. If the sum is a multiple of 9, the number is also a multiple of 9.

### Q: What values can the digit z take to make 31z5 a multiple of 9?

The digit z can be either 0 or 9. If z is 0, the sum of the digits is 9, which is a multiple of 9. If z is 9, the sum becomes 27, which is also a multiple of 9.

### Q: How do we determine the value of x in 24x to make it a multiple of 3?

The sum of the digits, 2 + 4 + x, should be a multiple of 3. By trying different values for x, we find that x can be 0, 3, 6, or 9.

### Q: What are the divisibility rules for numbers?

Divisibility by 2, 5, and 10 depends only on the last digit. Divisibility by 4 depends on the last two digits. Divisibility by 3 and 9 depends on the sum of the digits.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• This video discusses divisibility rules and focuses on questions involving the multiples of 9.

• The sum of the digits in a number should be a multiple of 9 for the number to be a multiple of 9.

• The value of the unknown digit, z, can be 0 or 9 to satisfy the divisibility rule.
