Find if a Number is Divisible by 25

A divisibility rule is a shortcut method used for finding if a number is divisible by a fixed divisor. Below is the Divisibility Rule for 25 to find whether a number is divisible by 25. The rule is illustrated with clear examples for easier understanding.

Divisibility Rule for 25

Rule:

The last two digits of the number ends with 00 or multiples of 25 .

Steps to be Followed:

If last two digits are divisible by 25, then the original number is also divisible by 25.

Apply this rule over and over again as necessary.

Example 1:

Let us consider the number 7800 and find if it is divisible by 25.

Solution:

Applying the divisibility rule for 25,

Step 1:

Here, last two digits are 0. Therefore, the number is divisible by 25

(i.e) 7800 / 25 = 312

Now, it is clear that 7800 is divisible by 25

Example 2:

Let us consider the number 9850 and find if it is divisible by 25.

Solution:
Step 1:

Here, last two digits is 50 (i.e) a multiple of 25 (25 x 2 = 50) Therefore, the number is divisible by 25

(i.e) 9850 / 25 = 394

Now, it is clear that 9850 is divisible by 25
