I think this should be simple - 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and 64.

The question clearly says that we need to find numbers which do not have odd factors.

So the number must be of the form $$2^n$$

Hence the numbers in the given range are $$2, 2^2, 2^3, 2^4, 2^5 \quad and \quad 2^6$$

So totally 6 numbers exits.

We have a range of 2...100.

Only some of the even integers will not be divisible by odd numbers in this range.
Let's try to list a few even numbers in the range: 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20....
Out of these 2,4,8,16 are not divisible by odd factors - it can be deduced that the numbers we seek are multiples of 2: 2,4,8,16,32,64.
