13/n + 18/n + 29/n = 60/n

60/n will be an integer when n is a factor of 60

60 = 2^2 * 3 * 5
Number of factors = 3 * 2 * 2 = 12

60 = 2^2 * 3 * 5
Number of factors = 3 * 2 * 2 = 12

I write this just for the benefit of others (Because I had to search how this is done)

This is how the total number of factors for a given number is found

1. Prime factorise the Number. Meaning, Write the number as the product of prime numbers (in our case $$60 = 2^2 * 3 * 5)$$
2. Write down the exponents of all the prime factors (in our case - $$2,1,1$$)
3. Add one to each of these exponents (In our case - $$2+1=3, 1+1=2, 1+1=2$$)
4. Multiply all the numbers got above to get our answer(In our case - $$3*2*2 = 12$$)
