• 100 = 16 * 6 + 4

Therefore, there are 16 such numbers.

• (100-0)/6=16.667. only whole numbers means 16 but that is because you have started the range at 0 (it takes a full 6 count to get to a whole number on the first step). the answer would be 17 for 101-200 and 201-300.

• The question is unclear.

All numbers are equal to 6 times a number. So all 100 numbers can be expressed that way.

6 * 1/6 = 1

6 * 1/3 = 2

6 * 1/2 = 3

etc.

On the other hand, I think you meant 6 times a *whole* number. Those are what we call multiples of 6.

1 * 6 = 6

2 * 6 = 12

3 * 6 = 18

...

15 * 6 = 90

16 * 6 = 96

There are 16 integer multiples of 6 in that range

The shortcut for figuring out the number of multiples of 6 in the range 1 to 100 is to divide 100 by 6 and drop the remainder.

100/6 = 16 remainder 4

16

• Do you mean from 6 x 1 = 6, all the way up to 6 x 16 = 96? That would be 16 of them.

All of them.

1 = 6 × 0.666....

2 = 6 × 0.333...

3 = 6 × 0.5

...

98 = 6 × 16.333...

99 = 6 × 16.5

100 = 6 × 16.6666...
