## Hi Brent,

I have a question.

Why is 3 not divisible by 6.

When 3 divide by 6, the answer is 0.5, which gives you no remainder as well.

## Great question!

Great question!

The key here is that, in order for x to be divisible by y, it must be the case that x ÷ y = some integer.

3 ÷ 6 = 0.5, and 0.5 isn't an integer.

Here's how the Official Guide puts it:

If x and y are integers and x ≠ 0, then x is a divisor (factor) of y provided that y = xn for some integer n.

For example, 3 is a divisor of 15, because we can write 15 = (3)(5), where 5 is an integer.

Does that help?

Cheers,

Brent
