All numbers divisible by 5 (of which 15 is a multiple) have a final digit of 0 or 5.

All numbers divisible by 3 (of which 15 is a multiple) have the sum of the digits totalling 3 or a multiple of 3.

Therefore, a number is divisible by 15 if the sum of its digits total 3 or a multiple of 3 and its final digit is 0 or 5.
