I think the simplest answer is any number divisible both by 2 and 3 (2x3=6), which is easy enough to figure out separately. All even numbers are divisible by 2, and all numbers divisible by 3 have their individual digits add up to a multiple of 3 (e.g. for 231, 2 + 3 + 1 = 6, and 6 is a multiple of 3, therefore 231 is also a multiple of 3).

In short, multiples of 6 are even numbers whose digits add up to a multiple of 3.
