We are given several statements and we must determine which one is true, n is a fixed positive integer, it asks which statement is true regardless of which positive integer n you choose?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The first one states that if n is divisible by 6, then n is divisible by 3.

I chose 12 for n and it was true.

I chose 18 for n and it was true as well.

Does this mean that the statement is true? Because I believe it is true.

Another one states if n is divisible by 3, then n is divisible by 6.

This one is still true because if you substitute 12 and 18 it still holds true.

Another one also states that if n^{2}is divisible by 6, then n is divisible by 6.

I chose 6 for n and it held true, ((6)^{2})/6 and 6/6 worked out meaning it must be true.

Is this the correct way to solve this question or am I doing it incorrectly?

Thank you.
