Yes in case of cascading counter which is nothing but an standard asynchronous counter u can multiply individual mod values to get resultant mod value..

So let us see how it works as well..Here after the input signal goes through 1st counter which is a mod 2 counter , so f_{1} = f_{inp} / 2

Now this output works as an input signal for 2nd flip flop of counter which is mod 3

So

f_{out }= f_{1} / 3

==> f_{out }= f_{input} / 6

So net result is that output frequency gets divided by 6 w.r.t input frequency.

Thus this is nothing but the mod value of counter..

**Hence output frequency here = 6 MHz / 6**

** = 1 MHz**

As a shortcut , if u r given 2 counters each of mod value m and n then frequency gets divided by mn as a whole..

just look at the 2nd part of that question is it similiar to that question ?

Will there be multiple output signals corresponding to same frequency when they come out of the first counter?
