Nicholas from Congleton wrote:

I used six lego bricks to pretend they were beads on an abacus. I started with six bricks on one side (the units) to make $6$ then swapped it to the tens side to make $60$.
I then took one brick and moved it over to the units side to make $51$, then swapped them over (making $15$).
I moved another from the $5$ to the $1$.
Then I repeated the process until I got to three on each side.

Answers: $6, 60, 15, 51, 42, 24$ and $33$.

P.S.: I wrote down the answers on a jotter as I went along.

I started with all the beads on the units and then just kept moving one across.
I got seven numbers. They were $6, 15, 24, 33, 42, 51$ and $60$.
