264,600 = 2^3*3^3*5^2*7^2

total number of factors = (3+1)*(3+1)*(2+1)*(2+1) = 144

264,600 = 2^3*3^3*5^2*7^2 = (3*2) *(2^2*3^2*5^2*7^2 )
==(6) *(2^2*3^2*5^2*7^2 )

No of factors that are divisble by 6 = 3*3*3*3= 81

Ans = 144-81 = 63

You have to find the multiples of 6 i.e. number of the forms: 6 * x. That's why 6 was taken out and all the possible values of x were calculated by applying the original formula i.e.

number of factors for p^a * q^b * r^c (where p,q,r are prime numbers) is = (a+1) * (b+1) * (c+1)

Hope this helps.
