Which numbers are multiples of 6?

There are an infinite number of multiples of 6 (numbers that six can divide into evenly with no remainder). Without using a calculator, you can determine if a number is a multiple of 6. To be a multiple of 6, it must have both 3 and 2 as factors. So if the number is even, then 2 is a factor. To determine if it is even, look at the ones digit, and if it is (0,2,4,6, or 8) then it's even. Then to determine if 3 is a factor, add the digits in the number, if this sum is a multiple of 3, then the number is also a multiple of 3 (or you could say 3 is a factor). If both of these are true, then the number is a multiple of 6. Example: 984: Last digit (ones digit) is 4, so it's even. Sum 9+8+4=21, which is a multiple of 3, so the number is a multiple of 3. Therefore it is a multiple of 6.

Is 72 a hcf of six and LCM of 252?

No. It can be neither. HCF is Highest Common Factor; a factor of a number is a number which divides into it with no remainder. Thus all factors are less than or equal to the number. 72 is greater than 6, therefore it cannot be a factor of 6, nor the Highest Common Factor of 6 and another number. LCM is Lowest Common Multiple; a multiple of a number is that number times some other number. Thus all multiples are greater than or equal to the number. 72 is less than 252, therefore it cannot be a multiple of 252, nor can it be the Lowest Common Multiple of 252 and another number. However, 6 is a factor of 72, thus 6 could be the HCF of 72 and another number, eg hcf(30, 72) = 6. But 252 is not a multiple of 72, so 252 could not be a LCM of 72 and some other number.

Why is 24 the least common multiple of 6 and 8?

If the last digit of a number is 6 then is 6 a factor?

Not necessarily. For example, the number 56 ends in a 6 but is not divisible by six. To check if a number is divisible by six, the number must be divisible by both 2 and 3. To check this, the last digit must be even and the sum of the digits must be divisible by three. If the number meets these conditions, it is in fact divisible by six.
