how do we find the first 40 positive integers divisible by 6?

When we want to find integers divisible by x (x=integer) we want to find integers of the form x*n when n is an integer as well.

Try it now, and let me know if you solved it

*sigh*

6 is divisble by 6. 6=6*1

12 is divisble by 6. 12=6*2

18 is divisble by 6. 18=6*3

34545674756345453.34543575 is not divisble by 6, because (34545674756345453.34543575)/6 is not an integer

21 is not divisble by 6, because 21/6 is not an integer.

im sorry, i dont want to give you the answer, i want YOU to get to the final answer

If we know that when n is an integer 6*n is divisble by 6 starting with 1, and we want to find 40 integers that are divisble by 6 then for the last integer n will be........?

n=?

my mistake- instead of "starting with 1" it should be "starting with n=1"
