DIVISIBILITY BY EIGHTEEN :Rule: Any number which is divisible by 9 and has its last digit (unit-digit) even (or zero), is divisible by 18.
Ex. 1. 926568 : Digit-sum is multiple of nine (je, divisible by 9) and unit-digit (8) is even, hence the number is divisible by 18.
Ex. 2. 273690 : Digit-sum is multiple of nine and the number ends in zero, so the number is divisible by 18.
Note: During the calculation of digit-sum, follow the method of "forget nine". If you get zero at the end of your calculation, it means the digit-sum is divisible by 9.
