Divisible by 3 Sum of its digits  is divisible by 3
Divisible by 4 Last two digit divisible by 4
Divisible by 5 Ends with 0 or 5
Divisible by 6 Divides by Both 2 & 3
Divisible by 8 Last 3 digit divide by 8
Divisible by 10 End with 0
Divisible by 11 [Sum of its digit in  odd places-Sum of its digits in even places]= 0 or multiple of 11

3. Learn the BODMAS rule where, BODMAS stands for:

Brackets

Orders

Division

Multiplication

Subtraction
