(1) F is a multiple of 3
(2) G is a multiple of 3


\(\frac{F}{6} + \frac{G}{4} = \frac{H}{12}.........2F+3G=H\)


(1) F is a multiple of 3
\(F=3X\)..
\(2F+3G=H......2*3X+3G=H....3(2X+G)=H\)
So H is a multiple of 3
suff

(2) G is a multiple of 3
\(G=3X\)..
\(2F+3G=H......2F+3*3x=H....2F+9x=H\)
If F is a multiple of 3, h is a multiple of 3
If G is a multiple of 2, H is a multiple of 2
But many ways in which say F and G are 1 and 3, H is 11...
