A number, n, is multiplied by 6 => n * 6

The product is increased by 24 => (n * 6) + 24

The entire quantity is divided by 3 => $$\frac{(n * 6) + 24}{3}$$

=> $$2n + \frac{24}{3}$$

=> $$2n + 8$$

Hence option C

1. n is multiplied by 6. So, 6n.

2. The product is increased by 24.

Product = 6n

So extended part = 6n +24

3. The entire quantity is divided by 3

(6n +24) /3

= 2n + 8.

The best answer is C.
