If a number is divisible by both 8 and 6 it should have factors of both 8 and 6.

8 = 2*2*2
6= 2*3

So the number should be divisible by 2*2*2*3 = 24

Since 3072 is divisible by both 6 and 8, it’s divisible by the LCM of 6 and 8, which is 24. Thus, the next larger integer that is divisible by both 6 and 8 is 3072 + 24 = 3096.

Answer: E

Only 3096 is divisible by 8. Hence Option E is correct
