“Any multiple of 6 is also a multiple of 12.”

Describe what Elaine should do to test her conjecture. Will she find that her conjecture is true or false? Explain your reasoning.

If they all work, then that's a good sign. Maybe she can develop a formula to test in general.

If some multiple fails, then she's done. Conjecture is false.

Guess how many multiples she will have to test.
