10! = 10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2

n=1 Yes
n=2 Yes
n=3 Yes
n=4 Yes
n=5 No
n=6 Yes (3*2,6, 9=3*3, 4=2*2)
n=7 No
n=8 No

Hence 5??

2^3 * 2^3 * 2^2 * 3^3 * 3 * 5^2 * 7

Take only those terms that have cubes.
We have 1,2,2,3 i.e 2^2 * 3
Factors possible = (2+1) (1+1) = 6

I see if I keep going
n=9 No
n=10 No
n=11 No
n= 12 Yes(4*3,6*2,8=4*2,9=3*3

Hence 6 factors. Long approach though
