(2) n and 2^3 are each divisible by the same number of positive integers. Finding the Number of Factors of an IntegerFirst make prime factorization of an integer \(n=a^p*b^q*c^r\), where \(a\), \(b\), and \(c\) are prime factors of \(n\) and \(p\), \(q\), and \(r\) are their powers. The number of factors of \(n\) will be expressed by the formula \((p+1)(q+1)(r+1)\). NOTE: this will include 1 and n itself. Example: Finding the number of all factors of 450: \(450=2^1*3^2*5^2\) Total number of factors of 450 including 1 and 450 itself is \((1+1)*(2+1)*(2+1)=2*3*3=18\) factors. For more on number properties check: mathnumbertheory88376.htmlBACK TO THE ORIGINAL QUESTION: If n is an integer, then n divisible by how many positive integers?(1) n is the product of two different prime numbers > n=ab, where a and b are primes, so # of factors is (1+1)(1+1)=4. Sufficient. (2) n and 2^3 are each divisible by the same number of positive integers > 2^3 has 4 different positive factors (1, 2, 4, and 8) so n has also 4. Sufficient. Answer: D.

It took me just 15 seconds to solve this.. N is a product of 2 different prime nos.......then 1,n and dose two prime nos. are divisible by n ...hence 4 nos. agen, 2^3 = 8, has 4 nos. from which it can be divided...agen n is divisible by 4 nos. Hence, D

@ Fozzzy Statement 1  n is the product of two different integers . They may be 2*3 or 3*7 or any two integers. Since they yield different products. We cannot determine the # of factors for n. Hence Statement 1  Insufficient.Statement 2  n and 2^3 are each divisible by the same number of positive integers. 2^3 = 8. Having 4 factors (1,2,4,8) . Since the statement says n and 8 are divisible by the same num of integers. n=4. Hence Statement 2  SufficientAnswer B. Hope this helps! Cheers
