• A prime number can’t be divided evenly (no remainder) by any number except itself and the number 1. Example: 7/7=1, 7/1=7  You can’t divide 7 evenly by any number other than itself and 1.
• If it is even, then you can divide it by 2.
• If it ends in 5 or 0, then you can divide it by 5.
• If you can add up the digits and divide the sum by 3 or 9, then you can divide the whole number by 3 or 9. Example 69: 6 + 9 = 15 You can divide 15 by 3 so you can divide 69 by 3.
