Integer y is the least common multiple of 98, 220, and 270. Which of the following is not a factor of y?

A. 40
B. 90
C. 140
D. 330
E. 490


prime factors of 98 = \(2*7^2\)
prime factors of 220 = \(2^2*5*11\)
prime factors of 270 = \(2*3^3*5\)

LCM of 98, 220, and 270 =
\(2^2*3^3*5*7^2\)

all the options i.e 90, 140, 330 and 490 can be obtained using the prime factors of LCM of 98, 220, and 270 except 40

Hence option A is correct
Hit Kudos if you liked it 8-)

LCM (y)= 2^2.3^3.7^2.5^1.11^1

Only option A (40) contains 2^3 and the maximum power of 2 in LCM is 2.

Therefore A is the answer.

LCM(98, 220, and 270) -> 2^2*7^2*5*3^3*11
Lets check each option one by one until we get a number that isnt a factor.

A) 40 => 2^3*5
We don't have 2^3 in y
Hence this is not a factor.

Bingo.

SMASH THAT A.

LCM of 98, 220, 270 = \(2^{2}\) * \(3^{2}\) * 5 * \(7^{2}\) * 11 = 97,020

* \(\frac{97020}{40}\) = 2,425.5 (not divisible)

* \(\frac{97020}{90}\) = 1078

* \(\frac{97020}{140}\) = 693

* \(\frac{97020}{330}\) = 294

* \(\frac{97020}{490}\) = 198

Hence, Option (A) is the correct answer.
