Now m can be any of the factors 1, 2,3,4,6,9,12,18,36...
But 36/m =3n.....12=mn
So for all m as factors of 12, n is a positive integer.
So m can be 1,2,3,4,6,12 and corresponding values of n too are 12,6,4,3,2,1
Hence 6 values of 3n.

6^2 has 9 factors( \(2^2*3^2\))
Since 3n is a multiple of 3, for 3n to be equal to 6^2/m, we have to count only those factors which comprise 3 or multiple of 3
out of 9 multiple 2^0,2^1, 2^2 have nothing to do with multiple of 3
so 6 factors
