Numbers divisible by 50 not divisible by 100 would be divisible by 2^1 and 5^2, but power of 2 cannot be more than 1 as anything including 2^2 and 5^2 would be divisible by 100. So only 1 power of 2 allowed(2^1) and 5 powers of 5(5^2,5^3,5^4,5^5,5^6)
=1*6*5*9
(1 powers of 2)*(6 powers of 3)*(5 powers of 5)*(9 powers of 7)
=270

Another method can be
factors of 50 - factors of 100
1890-1620=270

To be divisible by 50, the factor must have 2*5^2 and to be not divisible by 100, it must NOT have 2^2*5^2. Hence the only constraints are on the power of 2 (which must be 1) and the power of 5 (which must be greater than or equal to 2)

The other prime factors can appear in any way in the factor. So number of factors = 1*(6)*(5)*(9) = 270
1 - because 2 can have a power in only one way
6 - because 3 can have 6 different powers (0/1/2/3/4/5)
5 - because 5 can have 5 different powers (2/3/4/5/6)
9 - because 7 can have 9 different powers (0/1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8)

Why can't 5 have 6 different powers. Because, you add 1 to the powers of 3 and 7, which I understand. Also, one 2 is understandable because more than one 2 will lead to divisibility by 100.
Thanks!

50 = 2*5^2

The power of 5 must be at least 2. It can be 3, 4, 5 or 6 as well. Here there are 5 different ways in which you can give a power to 5.
