# Is 12 Divisible By 4?

In this quick and easy guide, we'll work out whether 12 is divisible by 4. There are some simple rules we can follow to decide whether one number is divisible by another without ever needing to even do the division!

First up, let's clarify what we mean by "12 is divisible by 4". What we want to check is whether 12 can be divided by 4 without any remainder (i.e the answer is a whole number).

You can quickly check whether 12 is divisible by 4 by looking at the last two digits of 12. In this case the last 2 digits are 12.

We can see that 12 IS divisible by 4, which means that 12 is also divisible by 4.

Another way you can figure out if 12 is divisible by 4 is by actually doing the calculation and dividing 12 by 4:

12 / 4 =   3

Since the answer to our division is a whole number, we know that 12 is divisible by 4.

Hopefully now you know exactly how to work out whether one number is divisible by another. Could I have just told you to divide 12 by 4 and check if it is a whole number? Yes, but aren't you glad you learned the process?

Give this a go for yourself and try to calculate a couple of these without using our calculator. Grab a pencil and a piece of paper and pick a couple of numbers to try it with.
