This statement is true because the solution is $0$, and $0$ is not a natural number.

Work Step by Step

This statement is true. To solve this equation, we divide both sides by $6$ to get: $x = \frac{0}{6}$ The solution would be $x = 0$. Since natural numbers include only the counting numbers, $0$ is not considered a natural number. Therefore, this solution is not a natural number.
