Problem

Pat intended to multiply a number by $6$ but instead divided by $6$. Pat then meant to add $14$ but instead subtracted $14$. After these mistakes, the result was $16$. If the correct operations had been used, the value produced would have been

$\textbf{(A)}\ \text{less than 400} \qquad\textbf{(B)}\ \text{between 400 and 600} \qquad\textbf{(C)}\ \text{between 600 and 800} \\ \textbf{(D)}\ \text{between 800 and 1000} \qquad\textbf{(E)}\ \text{greater than 1000}$
