147000 = 147*1000 , 147 = 7^2*3 , 1000 = (5*2)^3.......my answer is C

Using prime factorization: 147000=7x7x3x5x5x5x2x2x2

so 2 red beads. Answer D.

I think Yezz meant D too, because he got 7^2

Firslty, take it easy :) Silly mistakes happened to everyone. :)

Secondly, I suggest u to track all your silly mistake inside an Excell files :) By doing so, u would be able to indentify some patterns (kind of multiplication, too fast on some sort of conclusion, wrong choices of picked numbers, etc....). Once your patterns identified, u have a fabulous tool in your hand : u will be able to predict risky aeras of silly mistakes fitted to u :) and reduce these mistakes by appropriated measures for each cases... A great plus for the GDay ;)

Frankly, I believe that u r already very good in Q Cicerone. :)

But anyways, u could possibly start such tracking files :). A man that can predict his mistakes and thus manage to fix them is almost invicible ;) or highly efficient :) ... especially fitted for such test as GMAT :)
