well, to work out if 5,676,882 is divisible by 6 then it has to be divisible by 2 and 3, because 2x3=6. we know it is divisible by 2 because it ends in a two. so now we have to know if it is divisible by 3. to do this, we add up all the digits, then if the answer is **bigger** than 9, we add those digits together again, rinse and repeat, until you get a one digit number. if that 1 digit number is 3,6 or 9, then the whole number is divisible by 3.

5+6+7+6+8+8+2=42

4+2=6

6 is divisible by three. therefore 5,676,882 is divisible by 3.

since it is divisible by 2 and 3, then it is also divisible by six.

so, 5,676,882 is divisible by 6.

We need to look at the first 3 numbers. (882)

882 is divisible by 6.

(882/6 = 147)

Therefore 5,676,882 is divisible by 6.

(5,676,882/6 = 946,147)

It must be a whole numebr when divided by the way. ;)
