The only possible integers that have 4 odd integers as factors are:

The possible prime factors: 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, and 31.

with 3, any of the above prime number is possible = 9 ways
with 5, any of the above prime number smaller than 19 is possible = 5 ways
with 7, any of the above prime number smaller than 13 is possible = 2 ways
with 11 and above, none.

got 16.

Definitely a good one. 8-)
Previously thought the question is wrong. :roll:

3x5 = 15 has four odd factors: 1, 3, 5 and 15.
3x7 = 21 has factors 1, 3, 7, and 21.
so on....
