Divisible

A number is divisible by another number if the remainder is 0 after dividing.

Example

There are 32 children. Can they form 4 teams with no one being left out?

8  (R0)
4 32 

They can form 4 teams with no one being left out because 32 is divisible by 4 (the remainder is 0 after dividing).

Another way of saying that 32 is divisible by 4 is to say that 4 divides 32. One number divides another number if the remainder is 0 after dividing.
