Constancy

The three equations are 12 x 6 = 72; 14 x 6 = 84; 16 x 6 = 96. My reasoning is as follows. The third equation indicates that C * C ends in C. Thus C can be among 0, 1, 5, and 6. We eliminate 0, 1, and 5 as possibilities (multiples of 5 end in only a zero or a 5). If C is 6, and all products are less than 100, then H = 1, and 16 is the greatest possible factor.
