Thus it's divisible by 3. A number that is divisible by both 2 and 3 is also divisible by 6. last 2 digit is divisible by 4 thus, 840 is divisible by 4. 7*12 = 84. So, 840 is the greatest integer that meets the condition. The best answer is E.

The greatest positive three-digit number that is a multiple of $$420$$ is $$840$$. Therefore, the answer is E.
