What is Number Aptitude?

Here is the answer for your question. It is an aptitude test to identify the capacity of an individual to know how quickly he/she can perform and solve Mathematical operations.

This test will help you to find your ability in performing arithmetic operations. A person with good numerical aptitude can perform any mathematical computations quickly.

Topics in Number Aptitude?

In most of the exams you were asked to solve the questions based on the operations of prime numbers, rational numbers, real numbers, odd and even numbers, composite numbers, etc.

Beside these topics you will also be asked to find solutions for other main topics such as unit’s digit, digital root, divisibility rules, number of zeroes, etc.

The test we provide will be completely focusing on interview exams and entrance exams. By taking up our test, you can develop your capacity of solving problems more quickly.

How to Prepare for Test ?

Repeated practice and continuous research about different topics can help you to score high in your exams.

Through our tests, we provide you a platform to practise aptitude questions and to enhance your skills. This will help you to prepare for your exams.


A prime is a whole number which is greater than 1 and is divisible only by itself and by 1. These  numbers have only two factors. They cannot be divided by other numbers. 

The first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, etc. These numbers cannot be divided by any other numbers and are only divisible by itself and 1. So these numbers are called prime numbers.

But 1 is not a prime number. This is because it does not satisfy the definition of prime number.  A prime number should have two factors (the number itself and 1) . but 1 have only one factor. So it is not considered as prime number.


A composite number is a positive integer and a whole that is not a prime number.

These numbers will have more than two factors and are divisible by multiple numbers. In other words, all positive numbers except the prime numbers can be considered as composite numbers.

For example 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, etc. 

All the above numbers have more than two factors and are divisible by more than two numbers. So they are called composite numbers.

NOTE: 1 is not a composite number either because it has only one factor.


A rational number is a number that is an integer and that can be expressed in fraction.

In Mathematical terms, a rational number can be expressed as p/q of two integers, where p is numerator and q is non zero denominator. Rational numbers can also be expressed as ratio of p to q (p:q) .

Example : 0, 1, 2/4, 23/34, 1256/98, 2345/842 and so on.


A real number is any number which may be positive or negative. It includes all the integers, rational numbers, prime numbers and composite numbers. They are not any imaginary numbers.

IMAGINARY NUMBERS can be called as non real numbers. These numbers cannot be quantified. For example square root of -1 . 

NOTE: Zero (0) is a real number.


Any number that cannot be divided equally can be called as odd numbers. In other terms, any integers that cannot be divided by 2 can be considered as odd numbers.

Examples : 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, etc. 

The last digit of any number that ends with the above numbers can be called as odd number.

Examples : 23, 177, 2495, 80919. 87451,etc

Odd numbers can also be negative numbers.

NOTE: Every odd number is placed in between an even number. 


The numbers that can be divided by 2 are called even numbers. These numbers can be divided equally. And when these numbers are divided by 2 , they won’t leave any remainder. 

Examples : 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, etc. 

Any number that has the above number in once place (last digit) can be considered as even numbers.

Examples : 22, 444, 736, 9978, 54370, etc.

Addition of two or more even numbers is always an even number.

NOTE: Every odd number is followed by an even number and every even number is followed by an odd number. 


Integers are nothing but the whole numbers. In other terms, integers are not fractional numbers. They can be both positive and negative numbers. Integers do not have decimal points. 

Examples : -2, -1, 5, 6, 99, 2934, etc. 

NOTE: Zero (0) is also an integer.

Important Formulas in Number Aptitude


An A.P. is of the form a, a+d, a+2d, a+3d, ...

where a is called the 'first term' and d is called the 'common difference'

1. nth term of an A.P. tn = a + (n-1)d

2. Sum of the first n terms of an A.P. Sn = n/2[2a+(n-1)d] or Sn = n/2(first term + last term)


A  G.P. is of the form a, ar, ar2, ar3, ...

where a is called the 'first term' and r is called the 'common ratio'.

1. nth term of a G.P. tn = arn-1

2. Sum of the first n terms in a G.P. Sn = a|1-rn|/|1-r|


1. A number is divisible by 2 if it is an even number.

2. A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 3.

3. A number is divisible by 4 if the number formed by the last two digits is divisible by 4.

4. A number is divisible by 5 if the units digit is either 5 or 0.

5. A number is divisible by 6 if the number is divisible by both 2 and 3.

6. A number is divisible by 8 if the number formed by the last three digits is divisible by 8.

7. A number is divisible by 9 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.

8. A number is divisible by 10 if the units digit is 0.

9. A number is divisible by 11 if the difference of the sum of its digits at odd places and the sum of its digits at even places, is divisible by 11.
