In a certain game, a large container is filled with red, yellow, green, and blue beads worth, respectively, 7, 5, 3, and 2 points each. A number of beads are then removed from the container. If the product of the point values of the removed beads is 147,000, how many red beads were removed? (og 264)

147,000 = 147*1000 = 49*3*10^3
=7^2 *3* 5^3*2^3

Ans: 2
