question should probably read "distinct prime number factors" for clarity. No double counting allowed 8-)

2*5^2*11*13

Answer is 4

143=11x13


A simple test for 11 divisibility is add alternate #s and subtarct from the other set.

For eg

143

Add 1 and 3 at odd positions

and subtract the sum of the numbers at even positions ie., 4 in this case

(1+3) - 4 = 0

||ly test for any # 1232
1+3 = 4
2+2=4

4-4 =0 so divisible by 11
