Hey HappyQuakka,

Since <n> = 2*4*6*8*10*12*.... n
<20> = 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 20
<22> = 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 22

Therefore <20> + <22> = 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 20 + 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 20*22 = 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 20(1+22) = 2*4*6*8*10*12.... 20*23

Hence the greatest prime factor must be 23(Option C)

Hope that helps!

I guess the question stem here should say "<n> denotes that the product of all the positive EVEN integers to n" only then we can solve it the way you have done. Please correct me if I am wrong
