Alice has been asked to complete some multiplication questions. The first question is 342 × 51. (i) Calculate 342 × 51. Show all your working.17442205215442173421442 (ii) Alice claims that even if you multiply lots of prime numbers together, you can never get an even number. Explain why Alice is wrong.2 Is a prime number.If we multiply any other prime number by 2 we get an even number ex. 2x7=14 so she´s wrongex.4x7=28 so she is wronngex.3x7=21 so she is not wrongex.3x9=27 so she is correctex.3x5=20 so she is correct 3.
