Great solution, however I was hoping someone would come up with an elegantly simple method that can be done "in one's head", along the lines of the divisible by 3 and/or 9 that most of us know.  I grew up in the era before PCs and calculators, and these rules were extremely useful, almost necessary, then.

Who's up to the challenge?
