does 6 divide evenly into x MEANS '"is X a multiple of 6 ?,

I solved the entire Q assuming that this statement means

' is X a factor of 6'6 divides evenly into x --> Isn't this the same as stating

'6 chocolates divide evenly into x children'?

If yes, x should either be 2 or 3 (ignoring 1 intentionally).

So, shouldn't the statement mean

X is a factor of 6?

If x were to be a multiple of 6, wouldn't the statement be

'6 divides x evenly'?

PS: I know I am a little confused about the use of language in this Q, but any help in pointing out where I am going wrong would be greatly appreciated!
