If 'ABC' has only 2 factors, ABC must be a prime number.

'ABCABC'= ABC* 1001= ABC*7*11*13

Number of factors of 'ABCABC'= 2*2*2*2= 16

nick1816 thanks for the debrief. I managed to obtain the answer but it took me a longer process of assuming a 3 digit prime (i.e 103) and finding its factors.

May i know if the 1001 from below is based on a known properties or an assumption?

abc * 1001
= abc* (1000+1)
= abc*1000 + abc*1
= abc000+ abc
=abcabc

Don't understand this. Take 127 for example

ABC = 127
ABCABC = 127127

Factors:

127127, 127, 1001, 143, 13, 11, 7, 1
