The positive integer k has exactly two positive prime factors, 3 and 7. If k has a total of 6 positive factors, including 1 and k, what is the value of k?

(1) 3^2 (3 squared) is a factor of k.
(2) 7^2 (7 squared) is NOT a factor of k.

Help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Best regards,

K > 0
K = $$3^a$$*$$7^b$$
(a+1)(b+1)=6
K = ?

Quote:
(1) 3^2 is a factor of k
(2) 7^2 is NOT a factor of k

1) $$3^2$$ is a factor of K
=> (2+1)(b+1)=6
=> b = 1
We can find the value of K.
Sufficient.

2) $$7^2$$ is NOT a factor of K
(a+1)(b+1)=6
=> b≠ 2 ; b can only be 1.
=> a = 2, b = 1
We can find the value of K.
Sufficient.

Great Official Question
