**Question: 588**

**2.** What is the remainder when the sum of three consecutive even integers is divided by 6 ?

A. 0

B. 1

C. 2

D. 3

E. 4

**Correct Answer:** A

**Explanation:**

**A** Plug in! Come up with a list of three consecutive even integers, and divide by 6 to determine the remainder: 2 + 4 + 6 = 12. When 12 is divided by 6, the remainder is 0. If you are not sure, you can try with a different set of consecutive even integers: 10 + 12+ 14 = 36, and 36 is evenly divided by 6. The remainder will always be 0, answer A.
