Trying to find how many jelly beans that can be in the jar?

Exactly half were red and exactly one-third were blue, which of the following is not a reasonable number of jelly beans that can be in the jar? Is it 24, 50, 60 or 90?

    Which of those numbers cannot be divided evenly by 2 and 3?

    x in jar
    (1/2) x = red
    (1/3 )x = blue

    total must be divisible by 2 and by 3, or by 6 in other words

    50 is not
