i saw this in a SAT prep book and i cannot figure out whats going on here:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it says: "2A is divisible by both 3 and 6. If A is a digit, what is the value of A?"

seems simple enough but the choices are 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6. dont both 3 and 6 work?

if A is 3, then 2A is 6, and that is divisible by both 3 and 6.

if A is 6, then 2A is 12 and that is divisible by both 3 and 6.

what am i missing?
