Anyone got a clue to best some this type of question?

If the integers a and n are greater than 1 and the product of the first 8 positive integers is a multiple of a^n, what is the value of a?

1) a^n = 64
2) n = 6

1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8 = 1*2*3*2^2*5*(2*3)*7*2^3
Given : k*a^n = 8!

From 1 if a^n = 64, it can either be 2^6 or 4^3, so insuff

From 2) if n=6, we know a=2 (not 4), so suff.
