(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Letnbe a natural number. If the number formed by the last three digits ofnis divisible by 8, thennis divisible by 8.

2. Relevant equations

Natural numbers are the set of {1,2,3,4,5,6,...}

3. The attempt at a solution

I believe we should use a direct proof to prove this conditional statement. Thus we will assume thatnis a natural number and the number formed by the last three digits ofnis divisible by 8. We will prove thatnis divisible by 8.

I don't know where to go from here. Please help!
