7150=715*10 (5*2)*(5*143) (143=11*13)

so the question is how many prime number 5, 2, 5, 11, 13..5 in all E it is..

if the question is HOW MANY DIFFERENT then the answer is 4..

In breaking down the prime factors, I stopped at 143, not seeing it broke down to 11 and 13. Is there a trick/easy way to spot that 143 isn't prime?
