Pls help me with this problem?
List 6 factors of the product of 5 consecutive even integers?
My answer is: the six factors of this products will be 1 and the 5 consecutive even integers themselves. Is that right?
Ex: the 5 consecutive even integers are: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
So the 6 factors of this product will be: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
There is a different explanation in the MGMAT - Number Properties. I understand the explanation but want to check to see if my understanding is right or wrong.
Yes you are right. The product of 5 different numbers will have at least
the 5 numbers as factors plus the number 1, which is a factor of all numbers
