# Integers: Rule of Divisibility by 3

Is the tens digit of a three-digit positive integer \$\$p\$\$ divisible by 3? >(1) \$\$p-7\$\$ is a multiple of 3. >(2) \$\$p-13\$\$ is a multiple of 3.
Incorrect. [[snippet]]
Correct. [[snippet]] Stat. (1): Plug in for \$\$p-7\$\$. If you plug in 123, which is a multiple of 3, then \$\$p=130\$\$. Now answer the question: the tens digit of \$\$p\$\$ is 3. Hence, 3 is divisible by 3, and the answer is "Yes." But is it always "Yes" for _any_ number? If you plug in 333 for \$\$p-7\$\$, then \$\$p=340\$\$. Now the answer is "No." Therefore, **Stat.(1) → Maybe → IS → BCE**. Stat. (2): Try using the same numbers; it's easier and it will save you time. If you plug in 123 for \$\$p-13\$\$, then \$\$p=136\$\$. The tens digit is 3, so the answer is "Yes." But is it "Yes" for _any_ number? If you plug in 333 for f \$\$p-13\$\$, then \$\$p=346\$\$, and the answer is now "No." Therefore, **Stat.(2) → Maybe → IS → CE**. Stat. (1+2): Use the same numbers to save time and effort. For instance, if \$\$p=136\$\$, then the answer is "Yes". But if you plug in \$\$p=346\$\$, then the answer is "No". Therefore, **Stat.(1+2) → Maybe → IS → E**.
