2*3*4*5*6*7*8 = 2 * 3 * 2^2 * 5 * 2 * 3 * 7 * 2^3 = 2^7 * 3^2 * 5 * 7

So n = 7, m = 2, k = 1, l = 1

n+m+k+l = 11

2* 3* 4 * 5 * 6 * 7 * 8 = 2^7 * 3^2 * 5 ^1 * 7^1

so n+m+k+l = 7+2+1+1 = 11

2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2x3x4x5x6x7x8x
2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2x3x2x2x5x2x3x7x2x2x2
2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2^7 x 3^2 x 5 x 7

n+m+k+l=7+2+1+1

Found the Prime factors of 2*3*4*5*6*7*8

2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2x3x4x5x6x7x8x
2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2x3x2x2x5x2x3x7x2x2x2
2^n * 3^m * 5^k * 7^l = 2^7 x 3^2 x 5 ^1x 7^1

upon equating powers,

n+m+k+l=7+2+1+1

n+m+k+l=11
