For those of you who are still confused by this problem this is how to break it down:

multiply 1-30:
1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x (2x3) x 7 x 8 x (3x3) x 10 x 11 x (3x4) x 13 x 14 x (3x5) x 16 x 17 x (3x3x2) x 19 x 20 x (3x7) x 22 x 23 x (3x8) x 25 x 26 x (3x9) x 28 x 29 x (3x10)

There are 14 3s in there, therefore 3^14
