multiplication of 8 first pos. int.
1*2*3*...*8=1*2^7*3^2*5*7
So we can see that there may be 3 different a values
2=>a^n can be 2^2, 2^3,...2^7
3=>a^n can be 3^2
4=>a^n can be 4^2, 4^3

Lets come to options
1) insuff.
There are 2 options for a
a=2, n=6
a=4, n=3

2)suff.
There is only one option for a that is 2.
