The trick is even more nifty: You do not need to sum up all the digits. You can ignore all 3s, 6s, 9s and 0s. And: If it is divisible after the second summary it is not only divisible by 3 but by 9 too!

True, and you can do the summing modulo 3 the whole way through, like for 92005
9 ≡ 0 (mod 3) →
2 ≡ 2, 0+2 = 2 ≡ 2 (mod 3) →
0 ≡ 0, 2+0 = 2 ≡ 2 →
0 ≡ 0, 2+0 = 2 ≡ 2 →
5 ≡ 2, 2+2 = 4 ≡ 1 →
1 is not divisible by 3


Sciscitor wrote:And: If it is divisible after the second summary it is not only divisible by 3 but by 9 too!

Alas, a trivial case: 3 is divisible by 3 but not 9, no matter how many times you sum the digits. A less trivial case: 39 ⇒ 12 ⇒ 3, two layers of divisibility but it's only divisible by 3.

The other way around does work: if the digits are divisible by 9, the number is divisible by both 9 and 3. :mrgreen:

You are right, I got something mixed up: It is only divisible by nine if the cross sum is divisible by nine.

Considering that I live in the zip code that produced Saturday's synagogue shooter, I think I have bigger worries.

(And also the 2012 Aurora shooter. Lovely neighborhood.)
