Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the "is" translates to an equals sign you should have this equation \[\Large \frac{1}{3}m = \frac{1}{2}m  n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So how would I solve? Can I just plug in the answer choices? Or is there a faster, more efficient way?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1m & n are integers, so the "n" portion on the RHS is an integer the 1/2 times m portion must also be an integer to form the entire RHS to be an integer
