off-the-wall thoughts

Good ol’ Trav sometimes laughs at me for the off-the-wall facts that run through my head and pop out at the oddest times. I have so much stuff floating around up there.

This morning I woke up remembering some integer division rules I learned in elementary school. They are tricks to see if a larger number can be divided by a smaller number without having any remainder. I don’t know why they were in my head this morning, but they were. So here you go:

1)If a number ends with an even digit or a zero, it is divisible by 2.

2)If the sum of a number’s digits equals a number divisible by 3, the number is divisible by 3.

Consider 3753. 3+7+5+3 = 18, which is divisible by 3. Therefore, 3753 is also divisible by 3. 3753/3 = 1251.

3)If the last two digits are divisible by 4, the entire number is divisible by 4. Any number that ends in two or more zeros is also divisible by 4.

Consider 7784. 84 is the number made from the last two digits, and it is divisible by 4. Therefore, 7784 is also divisible by 4. 7784/4 = 1946.

4)If a number ends in zero or 5, it is divisible by five.

5)If a number is divisible by both 2 and 3, it is divisible by 6.

Not worth much, but kinda neat, if you like numbers. If you want to see something fancy, ask me how to manipulate IP addresses and firewall rules on a binary level. Then I’ll show off.

It's 12:26AM.

Can I just play dumb blonde and come back with a literate comment in the morning?

DT, you can play how ever you like. I love it when you play.

Daphne, I'll be glad to refund your money. Do you accept monopoly money?

Bulging, you yanking my chain, or are you in the business for real?
