In this post, we will learn the criteria for **the divisibility of 5.** How can we know without having to do the division? Here we will show you the easiest way.

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

**For example:**

#### Is 5,815 divisible by 5?

We look at the last number and it is 5, therefore, **5,815 is divisible by 5**.

**Another example:**

Is 5,688 divisible by 5?

The last number is 8. Since the number does not end in a 0 or 5,** 5688 is not divisible by five.**

Isn’t that easy?
