1. ## positive divisors of 192 are also multiples of 6?

Hi,
the question is:
How many of the positive divisors or 192 are also multiples of 6?
Please tell me how you figure this out. (the steps)
Thanks!

2. Hello, eri!

Did you do anything yet?
Or are you waiting for someone to offer a Magic Formula?

How many of the positive divisors or 192 are also multiples of 6?

What are the multiples of 6?
. . Well, they are: .6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 42, 48, 54, . . .

And which of those are divisors of 192 ?

I found 6, 12, 24, 48, 96 and 192

I factored 192 into 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 x 3 and just multiplied 6 times each group of factors.

6 X 2
6 x 4
6 x 8
.
.
6 X 32

4. ## got to factoring

Hi masters,
Before I asked this question, I did factor 192
but then i didn't know what to do after that.
thanks for getting me over that "mental block".

You're very welcome. I hate those "mental blocks", too. As I get older, they come more often. Have a great evening.
