According to his proven work:

To test for divisibility by 7

Take a number that is initially divisible by seven.

Multiply the last digit by 5 and add it to the remaining number.

For example, take the number 532

53 + 2 x 5 = 63

63 is a multiple of 7, so 523 is a multiple of 7.

Or take the number 987

98 + 7 x 5 = 133

13 + 3 x 5 = 28

28 is a multiple of 7, so both 133 and 987 are multiples of 7.

If you keep going, you will always end up with either 7 or 49 if the original number is a multiple of 7.

Take the number 2996

299 + 6 x 5 = 329

32 + 95 = 77

7 + 75 = 42

42 x 5 = 14

14 x 5 = 21

21 x 5 = 7
