[link] highlights the multiples of $10$ between $1$ and $50.$ All multiples of $10$ all end with a zero.

Determine whether each of the following is a multiple of $10\text{:}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$

1. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}425\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}350$

## Solution

 ⓐ Is 425 a multiple of 10? Is the last digit zero? No. 425 is not a multiple of 10.
 ⓑ Is 350 a multiple of 10? Is the last digit zero? Yes. 350 is a multiple of 10.

[link] highlights multiples of $3.$ The pattern for multiples of $3$ is not as obvious as the patterns for multiples of $2,5,\text{and}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}10.$

Unlike the other patterns we’ve examined so far, this pattern does not involve the last digit. The pattern for multiples of $3$ is based on the sum of the digits. If the sum of the digits of a number is a multiple of $3,$ then the number itself is a multiple of $3.$ See [link] .

 $\mathbf{\text{Multiple of 3}}$ $3$ $6$ $9$ $12$ $15$ $18$ $21$ $24$ $\mathbf{\text{Sum of digits}}$ $3$ $6$ $9$ $\begin{array}{c}\hfill 1+2\hfill \\ \hfill 3\hfill \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{c}\hfill 1+5\hfill \\ \hfill 6\hfill \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{c}\hfill 1+8\hfill \\ \hfill 9\hfill \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{c}\hfill 2+1\hfill \\ \hfill 3\hfill \end{array}$ $\begin{array}{c}\hfill 2+4\hfill \\ \hfill 6\hfill \end{array}$

Consider the number $42.$ The digits are $4$ and $2,$ and their sum is $4+2=6.$ Since $6$ is a multiple of $3,$ we know that $42$ is also a multiple of $3.$

Determine whether each of the given numbers is a multiple of $3\text{:}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$

1. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}645\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}10,519$

## Solution

Is $645$ a multiple of $3?$

 Find the sum of the digits. $6+4+5=15$ Is 15 a multiple of 3? Yes. If we're not sure, we could add its digits to find out. We can check it by dividing 645 by 3. $645÷3$ The quotient is 215. $3\cdot 215=645$

Is $10,519$ a multiple of $3?$

 Find the sum of the digits. $1+0+5+1+9=16$ Is 16 a multiple of 3? No. So 10,519 is not a multiple of 3 either.. $645÷3$ We can check this by dividing by 10,519 by 3. $\begin{array}{c}3,506\text{R}1\\ \hfill 3\overline{)10,519}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\end{array}$

When we divide $10,519$ by $3,$ we do not get a counting number, so $10,519$ is not the product of a counting number and $3.$ It is not a multiple of $3.$

Determine whether each number is a multiple of $3\text{:}$

1. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}954\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}3,742$

1. yes
2. no

Determine whether each number is a multiple of $3\text{:}$

1. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}643\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}$
2. $\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}8,379$

1. no
2. yes

Look back at the charts where you highlighted the multiples of $2,$ of $5,$ and of $10.$ Notice that the multiples of $10$ are the numbers that are multiples of both $2$ and $5.$ That is because $10=2\cdot 5.$ Likewise, since $6=2\cdot 3,$ the multiples of $6$ are the numbers that are multiples of both $2$ and $3.$

## Use common divisibility tests

Another way to say that $375$ is a multiple of $5$ is to say that $375$ is divisible by $5.$ In fact, $375÷5$ is $75,$ so $375$ is $5\cdot 75.$ Notice in [link] that $10,519$ is not a multiple $3.$ When we divided $10,519$ by $3$ we did not get a counting number, so $10,519$ is not divisible by $3.$

## Divisibility

If a number $m$ is a multiple of $n,$ then we say that $m$ is divisible by $n.$

Since multiplication and division are inverse operations, the patterns of multiples that we found can be used as divisibility tests. [link] summarizes divisibility tests for some of the counting numbers between one and ten.

Divisibility Tests
A number is divisible by
$2$ if the last digit is $0,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}2,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}4,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}6,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{or}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}8$
$3$ if the sum of the digits is divisible by $3$
$5$ if the last digit is $5$ or $0$
$6$ if divisible by both $2$ and $3$
$10$ if the last digit is $0$

Determine whether $1,290$ is divisible by $2,3,5,\text{and}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}10.$

## Solution

[link] applies the divisibility tests to $1,290.$ In the far right column, we check the results of the divisibility tests by seeing if the quotient is a whole number.

Divisible by…? Test Divisible? Check
$2$ Is last digit $0,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}2,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}4,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}6,\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\text{or}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}8?$ Yes. yes $1290÷2=645$
$3$ $\text{Is sum of digits divisible by}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}3?$
$1+2+9+0=12$ Yes.
yes $1290÷3=430$
$5$ Is last digit is $5$ or $0?$ Yes. yes $1290÷5=258$
$10$ Is last digit $0?$ Yes. yes $1290÷10=129$

Thus, $1,290$ is divisible by $2,3,5,\text{and}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}10.$

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
