Divisibility Rules

Sean Sheridan
Thursday, April 2, 2015
11:30 AM - 12:15 PM,
 RT 1516

While factoring large integers tends to be a hard problem in general, there are various methods for mentally determining whether a number is divisible by various small integers. For example, an integer is divisible by three if and only if the sum of its digits is divisible by three. We will state various divisibility rules like this one, show how they apply to various integers, and provide proofs for them.

Pizza and beverages will be provided

Everyone is welcome!
