Say Sue was hired when she was already 70 years old (k=70), then she could retire right away, at the age of 70. Now, plug k=70 in the answer choices and see which yields 70. Only C fits.

Answer: C.

360=2^3*3^2*5 --> the number of factor is (3+1)(2+1)(1+1)=24. Check here: math-number-theory-88376.html

Also, please post new questions in separate topics.
