Positive factors of 10p will depend on value of p or atleast number and type of factors of p

1) p has 3 positive factors.
It tells us that p is a square of prime number.
If p contains the prime factor same as 10 has that is 2 or 5, answer will be different from when prime factor of p is not 2 or 5
Say 2.. 10p=10*2^2=2^3*5.....# of factors = (1+1)(3+1)=8
Say 7.. 10p=\(10*7^2=2*5*7^2\)....# of factors=(1+1)(1+1)(2+1)=2*2*3=12
Insufficient

2) GCF of 10 and p is 1
So p and 10 do not have any common factor...
Value of p required.
Insufficient

Combined..
p does not have 2 or 5..
Ans 12
Sufficient
