`I realized after my post that there was a problem. I am working on a more complicatedfunction and maybe you can help me with twoquestions.`
`1) Let x>0. Does the following exist?`
`   max { 2^i*3*j | i,j in Z and 2^i*3^j <= x }`
`2) If the answer to 1) is yes.`
`   Let x,y>0. If `
`     2^m*3^n = max { 2^i*3*j | i,j in Z and 2^i*3^j <= x }`
`                       and`
`     2^p*3^q = max { 2^i*3*j | i,j in Z and 2^i*3^j <= y }`
`   does`
`     2^(m+p)*3^(n+q) = max { 2^i*3*j | i,j in Z and 2^i*3^j <= xy } ?`
` `
