Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

What is `5-:2`?

  • only `2`
  • quotient `2` and remainder `1`
  • quotient `2` and remainder `1`
  • both the above

The answer is "quotient `2` and remainder `1`".

What is `6-:2`?

  • only `3`
  • quotient `3` and remainder `0`
  • both the above
  • both the above

The answer is "both the above".

Note the difference

 •  Result of `6-:2` is, quotient `3` and remainder `0`.

 •  Result of `5-:2` is, quotient `2` and remainder `1`

For a given divisor, the numbers can be grouped as

 •  numbers for which remainder is `0` and

 •  numbers for which remainder is not `0`.

A number is called "divisible" by a divisor, if the remainder is `0`.

Which of the following is a meaning for the word "divisible"?

  • having capability to be divided with `0` remainder
  • having capability to be divided with `0` remainder
  • having capability to change from one activity to another

The answer is "having capability to be divided with `0` remainder".

What is the term used to refer "a number can be divided without remainder"?

  • Pronunciation : Say the answer once
    Spelling: Write the answer once

The answer is "divisible".

Divisibility : A number (dividend) is divisible by a divisor number if the remainder is `0`.

Is `42` divisible by `8`?

  • Yes
  • No
  • No

The answer is "No". `42-:8 = 5 text( quotient ) 2 text( remainder )`. So `42` is not divisible by `8`.

Is `12` divisible by `6`?

  • Yes
  • Yes
  • No

The answer is "Yes". `12-:6 = 3 text( quotient ) 0 text( remainder )`. So `12` is divisible by `6`.
