A. 38910
B. 39340
C. 39980
D. 40320
E. 40450

Backsolve. $$8!$$ has to be divisible by 3. Choices B, C, and E are out for this reason. $$8!$$ has to be divisible by 4. Hence choice A is out. The only viable option is choice D.

no need to backsolve.
no need to check the divisibility.
since 6!=720
8!=720*8*7=> 720*56=> 72*56*10
here the tens digit must must be 2
hence option D

How about checking divisibility with 8.(Since 8! will have 8)
Backsolve. 8! has to be divisible by 8

Only (D) satisfies .

Yes. A number is divisible by 8 if the number formed by the last three digits is divisible by 8. Since only 320 (D) is divisible by 8 then it must be correct.

yes, I also looked for tenth digit unit of answer choices and then recognized they're totally different. So just leave out 5*2=10, multiply unit digit of 7*8 = 56*6=6*4*3=2, only choice D

Hi Bunuel, Does this work with all numbers? Like is a number divisible 4 if its last 3 digits are divisible by 4? Is it a rule? Thanks.

A number is divisible by 2 if the last digit is divisible by 2.
A number is divisible by 4 if the last 2 digits are divisible by 4.
A number is divisible by 8 if the last 3 digits are divisible by 8.
