hello every one im trying to write a c++ program where it can check if a number is divisible by 5 and 10. if so it needs to print out number is divisible by 10; same case if it is not divisible by it. Here is part of what i have so far but it is still fruit less.
```#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int divisibleBy  (int x) {

if (x == 1) {

cout << x << "is divisible by five!" << endl;

} else {

divisibleBy  (x-5/5);

if (x!=1){

cout<<"x is not diviible by 5"<< endl;

}

if (x==1){

cout <<"x is divisible by 10"<< endl;

}

else if (x!=1){

cout<<"x is not divisible by 10" << endl;

}

return 0;

}

}

int main()

{

int x;

cout << "Please enter a number: " << endl;

cin >> x;

divisibleBy(x);

return 0;

}

```

Hey there willmon2000,

I don't seem to understand your logic behind your "divisibleBy" function where you are comparing your "x" variable to "1" and your "x-5/5". I think what you are trying to do there is look for a remainder of a certain number when divided by another number. The best way to achieve this is by using the modulus operator to return back a remainder rather than just dividing the number. I have also neatened up your function and made it a void function since you don't seem to be returning anything of importance, here is the revised code:

```#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

void divisibleBy(int x);

int main()
{
int x;
cout << "Please enter a number:" << endl;
cin >> x;
divisibleBy(x);
return 0;
}

void divisibleBy(int x)
{
if (x % 5 > 0)
cout << x << " is not divisible by five!" << endl;
else
cout << x << " is divisible by five!" << endl;

if (x % 10 > 0)
cout << x << " is not divisible by ten!" << endl;
else
cout << x << " is divisible by ten!" << endl;
}```
Please let me know if this was what you were looking for and if there is anything else you need Peace Out • 0
