In a certain game, a large container is filled with red, yellow, green, and blue beads worth, respectively, 7, 5, 3, and 2 points each. A number of beads are then removed from the container. If the product of the point values of the removed beads is 147,000, how many red beads were removed?
(A) 5
(B) 4
(C) 3
(D) 2
(E) 0

I don't know the answer.

I also got 2 red, I used the prime factor method, 7 points must be in there twice to obtain the result. Since there is not other way to get a seven using the other factors two must be the answer.
