Factorize it and get 4 unique factors
2*5*5*11*13

First, find the prime factorization of 7150. I fear there is
no shortcut for that :(

7150 = 2 * 5^2 * 11 * 13

That's it. You don't have to check any combinations because
the numbers couldn't be prime.

So 2, 5, 11 and 13 and therefore D.

By the way, the condition "between 1 and 100" is useless.

btw, is there a shortcut to know if a number is divisible by 11 and/or 13? In this case 143 is divisible by both. Thanks

143 is divisble by 11

Add alternate numbers and subtract one from the other

1+3 = 4
the other alterrnate number is 4
So 4-4 = 0 is divisible by 11

So this is a test for 11 divisibility
