# Check if a large number is divisible by 8 or not

Given a number, the task is to check if a number is divisible by 8 or not. The input number may be large and it may not be possible to store even if we use long long int.

Examples:

```Input  : n = 1128
Output : Yes

Input : n = 1124
Output : No

Input  : n = 363588395960667043875487
Output : No
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Since input number may be very large, we cannot use n % 8 to check if a number is divisible by 8 or not, especially in languages like C/C++. The idea is based on following fact.

A number is divisible by 8 if number formed by last three digits of it is divisible by 8.

Illustration:

```For example, let us consider 76952
Number formed by last three digits = 952
Since 952 is divisible by 8, answer is YES.
```

How does this work?

```Let us consider 76952, we can write it as
76942 = 7*10000 + 6*1000 + 9*100 + 5*10 + 2

The proof is based on below observation:
Remainder of 10i divided by 8 is 0 if i greater
than or equal to three. Note than 10000,
1000,... etc lead to remainder 0 when divided by 8.

So remainder of "7*10000 + 6*1000 + 9*100 +
5*10 + 2" divided by 8 is equivalent to remainder
of following :
0 + 0 + 9*100 + 5*10 + 2 = 52
Therefore we can say that the whole number is
divisible by 8 if 952 is divisible by 8.```

Below is implementation of above fact :
