15500, in words, is written as ‘Fifteen Thousand Five Hundred.’ If someone tells us fifteen thousand five hundred, we create the number 15500 in our minds. In mathematics, it is a five-digit natural number. Natural numbers start from 1 and may end up to infinity. Therefore, every number greater and equal to 1 is a natural number. Hence, 15500 is a natural number.

An even number is any number that, when divided by 2, gives zero as a remainder. One-digit even numbers are 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8. And any number ending with these digits will also be an even number. For example, 52, 64, 150, 208, etc., are even numbers. Thus, 15500 is also even as it will give zero as a remainder when divided by 2.

It is also a composite number. Composite numbers, when divided by some numbers apart from 1 and itself, give zero as the remainder. For example, 9 can be divided by 1, 3 and 9, so the remainder will be zero. Thus, 15500 is also a composite number.

Consider 63 such that ‘6’ and ‘3’ have different positions in this number. ‘6’ has the place value of ‘ten’ while the place value of ‘3’ is ‘one’. Therefore, in number, the place value describes the position of a digit.

We have different notations for their place values for a number greater than two digits. Hundred, thousand, and ten thousand place values, respectively, are for three, four, and five-digit numbers.

Ten Thousand | Thousand | Hundred | Ten | One |

10000 | 1000 | 100 | 10 | 1 |

Therefore, for the number 15500, we have the following place values:

1 has ten thousand as place value.

5 has thousand as place value.

5 has hundred as place value.

0 has ten as place value.

0 has one as place value.

Ten Thousand | Thousand | Hundred | Ten | One |

10000 | 5000 | 500 | 00 | 0 |

15500 can be written in words by knowing the place value of the number in the above table. We have ‘1’ in the ‘ten thousand’ place, ‘5’ in the ‘thousand’ place, ‘5’ in the ‘hundred’ place, ‘0’ in the ‘ten’ place, and ‘0’ in the ‘one’ place.

The expansion of the number 15500 is:

\begin{aligned}

&1 \times \text { Ten thousand }+5 \times \text { Thousand }+5 \times \text { Hundred }+0 \times \text { Ten }+0 \times \text { One } \\

&=1 \times 10000+5 \times 1000+5 \times 100+0 \times 10+0 \times 1 \\

&=15500 \\

&=\text { Fifteen Thousand Five Hundred }

\end{aligned}

Thus, in this way, 15500 can be written as ‘fifteen thousand five hundred.’ Any number can be written into words in a similar manner.

When a number is divided by some other number, giving zero as the remainder, the latter number is called the factor of the former. The remainder is zero when we divide 18 by 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9. Thus, we can conclude that 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9 are factors of 18.

Factors of 15500 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 31, 50, 62, 100, 124, 125, 155, 250, 310, 500, 620, 775, 1550, 3100, 3875, 7750, and 15500. We can also say that 15500 is divisible by the following numbers.

After dividing a number, when the remainder is zero, the number is divisible by the number from which it is being divided. For example, if we divide the number ‘25’ by ‘5’, the remainder comes to be zero. Hence, we can say that the number 25 is divisible by 5. But if we divide 25 by 3, the remainder will be one. Therefore, 25 is not divisible by 3.

To determine the divisibility of a number, there are certain rules, called divisibility rules. Thus, the divisibility of 15500 by other numbers can also be explained. 15500 is divisible by 1 just like every number is divisible by 1. Also, since 15500 is even, it is divisible by 2. But it is not divisible by 3 as the sum of a number is 11, which is not a multiple of 3.

Since the last two digits are zero, 15500 is also divisible by 4. It is divisible by 5 as the number ends with ‘0’. It is not divisible by 6 because of its divisibility with ‘2’ but not with ‘3’. By checking its divisibility further for 7, 8, 9, and 10, we conclude that the number 15500 is divisible by 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10.
