Re: What is the sum of all the prime factors of 220 and 330? [#permalink]
Prime factorization of both the numbers is as follows
220 = 2 * 2 * 5 * 11
sum of the prime factors of 220 = 20
330 = 2 *3 * 5 * 11
sum of prime factors of 330 = 21
addition of both = 20 + 21 = 41
correct Answer - D

11 20 30
2 10 15
5 2 3
11+2+5= 18 (not in the option)

220 =(2^2)(5)(11) --> sum = 20

330 =(2)(3)(5)(11) --> sum = 21

20+21 = 41

KarishmaB MartyMurray How can '4' be considered  a  prime factor here  ?  There must be  a typing error somewhere. Kindly check . bb , Bunuel
