Really hope someone can help! Here's the question:
'give an example showing that the PRODUCT of three consecutive whole numbers is a multiple of six.'
I know this is most likely a simple question, but with all the mathematical terms, it therefore confuses me. :/ really hope someone can help me as soon as possible please?!?! I need to understand it before the exam this afternoon... :L

Hi there!
Good luck for the afternoon! (:

Well..
i have two set of numbers that are a multiple of 6.
For example, 1,2,3 = (1 x 2= 2. And 2x3=6.)

And another one is 2,3,4 = (2 x 3= 6, 6 x 4 =24.)
Also 24 is a mutiple of 6.
:D

Once again, good luck! (:
