A. 13
B. 14
C. 15
D. 16
E. 17

factorize 3360 we get = 2*2*2*2*2*5*3*7
given a*b*c are consecutive
A) 13 not possible
B) 14 , it can be 13 14 15 ; 13 not possible so eliminate B
C) 15, abc would be 14 15 16; possible

C

prime factorize:

3360 = 3*5*2*2*2*2*7*2

3*5 =15
\(2^4= 16\)
7*2 =14

C is the correct answer.

3360 = 14*15*16

b would be 15 IMO C

\(3360 = 14*15*16\)

So, \(c = 16\) , \(b = 15\) & \(a = 14\)

Thus, Answer must be (C) 15
