Split 12375 into factors.
this gives 3^2 * 5^3 * 11 = 12375

that means he has selected two 3 point cards, three 5 point cards, and one 11 point card.

We are given that a bag contains pieces worth 3, 5, and 11 points, respectively, and that Jake scores 12375. We need to determine how many pieces he selected. Let’s break 12,375 into primes.

12,375 = 25 x 495 = 25 x 5 x 99 = 5^2 x 5^1 x 3^2 x 11^1 = 3^2 x 5^3 x 11^1

Thus, Jake pulled 2 threes, 3 fives, and 1 eleven for a total of 6 pieces.
