Every 8-digit number structured ABCXABCX, where A,B and C are not necessarily distinct, is divisible by 365 iff X equals either 5 or 0.

Why?

ABCXABCX = 10001 * ABCX

10001= 73 * 137

ABCX has factor 5 if and only if X is 5 or 0.

When ABCX is divisible by 5, that's when 10001 * ABCX is divisible by 73 * 5 = 365.
