Hello,

Is there a short-cut way to determine that 10! is divisible by 3?

Comes from this question taken form a practice test:
How many integers divisible by 3 are there between 10! and 10!+20 inclusive? Answer is 7

10! = 10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 is divisible by 3
10! + 1 is not
10! + 2 is not

10! is
10! + 3 is
10! + 6 is
10! + 9 is
10! + 12 is
10! + 15 is
