147000 = 147*1000 , 147 = 7^2*3 , 1000 = (5*2)^3.......my answer is C

Using prime factorization: 147000=7x7x3x5x5x5x2x2x2

I think Yezz meant D too, because he got 7^2

Firslty, take it easy Silly mistakes happened to everyone.

Secondly, I suggest u to track all your silly mistake inside an Excell files By doing so, u would be able to indentify some patterns (kind of multiplication, too fast on some sort of conclusion, wrong choices of picked numbers, etc....). Once your patterns identified, u have a fabulous tool in your hand : u will be able to predict risky aeras of silly mistakes fitted to u and reduce these mistakes by appropriated measures for each cases... A great plus for the GDay

Hey , Yezz why i felt so bad about this question is , you answered everything perfectly and when it came to clicking the option u clicked the wrong one.
That's the reason why i said u were trying to be too fast..............
As Fig said everyone of us commit silly mistakes........
And Fig has suggested a nice idea............. I would love to follow that
What do u say Fig?

Frankly, I believe that u r already very good in Q Cicerone.

But anyways, u could possibly start such tracking files . A man that can predict his mistakes and thus manage to fix them is almost invicible or highly efficient ... especially fitted for such test as GMAT
