In this post we will learn the **criteria of divisibility by 5.** A number is divisible by 5 when dividing the number by 5 results in a remainder of zero. But how can we know without having to complete the division? Here we show you the easiest way.

##### Divisibility criteria for 5:

To determine if a number is divisible by 5, that number must end in** 0 or 5**. If it ends in another number then it is not divisible by five.

For example:

**Is 5815 divisible by 5?
**

We looked at the last number (**5815) **and it is 5, therefore, 5815 itself *is divisible* by 5.

Another example:

**Is 5688 divisible by 5?
**

The last number is 8 (**5688) **and as it is different from 0 or 5, 5688 *is not divisible* by five.

Isn’t it easy!?
