What are Multiples of 6?

A number is called a multiple of 6 if it is completely divisible by 6 with the remainder zero.

For example, 6 divides 12 completely, so by the definition 12 is a multiple of 6. Similarly, 6, 12, 18, 24, 60, 600, etc. are all examples of multiples of 6 as they are completely divisible 6.

Remark: From the above definition, it is clear that any multiple of 6 can be written as 6n for some integer n. So the set of multiples is given by

{6n: n is an integer}
