    Answer:

    144

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First: 6x

    Second: 6x+6

    Third: 6x+12

    Fourth: 6x+18

    – Since they’re multiples of 6

    6x+6x+6+6x+12+6x+18=540

    24x+36=540\\

    Subract 36 from each side give us…

    24x=504\\x=21

    21(6)+18=144

    Hope this helped! Please mark brainliest 🙂
