18 is divisible by both 2 and 3 . It is also divisible by $ 2 \times 3=6 $. Similarly, a number is divisible by both 4 and 6. Can we say that the number must also be divisible by $ 4 \times 6=24 $ ? If not, give an example to justify your answer.

Given:

18 is divisible by both 2 and 3 . It is also divisible by \( 2 \times 3=6 \). Similarly, a number is divisible by both 4 and 6. 

To do :

We have to find whether the number is be divisible by \( 4 \times 6=24 \).

Solution :

It is not necessary that the number is be divisible by \( 4 \times 6=24 \).

Example:

12 and 36 are both divisible by 4 and 6.

12 and 36 are not divisible by 24.
