### HideShow timer Statistics The “length of integer x” refers to the number of prime factors, not necessarily distinct, that x has. (If x = 60, the length of x would be 4 because 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5.) What is the greatest possible length of integer z if z < 1,080?

I would just notice that 2^10 is 1024 and 2 is the smallest number so take it to the largest exponent.

Can also list out to verify took 15 seconds.

To maximize the length of z we should minimize its prime base. The smallest prime is 2 and since 2^10=1,024<1,080 then the greatest possible length of integer z is 10.

I keep doing poorly on the Number Property type questions, because I do not know a lot of the rules, is there a resource available for help with this? I looked in the GMAT Club Math Book, but I need more help.

concentrated on 1080 and lost time)

Idea is looking for degree of smallest prime number which is 2^10=1024

i started with the similar approach...
2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 or 2^10 = 1024
maximum possible.
