Best answer:
You realize that multiplication is nothing more than sequential adding, don't you? Multiplying 2/4 by 6 is simply adding
2/4 + 2/4 + 2/4 + 2/4 + 2/4 + 2/4 = 3
So yes, you can multiply fractions by whole numbers because that is nothing more than adding a fraction to itself some number of times.

Your update that the answer is not 3 is a false statement in the context of the question you asked. If the answer is not 3, then there are conditions to the problem statement that you have not revealed. In that case, you've posted your question in the wrong forum which is a violation of the community guidelines. It should be in the Jokes and Riddles forum.
