6=2*3
We know every alternate number is even.and divisable by 2..
we have to find out how many integers are divisable by 3
103-92 --> 12 numbers present 12/3=4 4 integers are divisable by 3

so max M=4

You need to prime factorize each inetger from n to k, looking for 2s and 3s to see how many 6s you can make.

There will be less 3s than 2s, so just count the number of 3s.

93: 1
96: 1
99: 2
102: 1

99 is divisible by 9 (i.e 3*3) so there are two threes
