Which of the following integers does NOT have a divisor greater than 1 that is the square of an integer?
(A) 75
(B) 42
(C) 32
(D) 25
(E) 12
******************
Prime factorization
75 = 5*5*3 = 5^2*3. Includes a perfect square 25
42 = 7*6 = 7*3*2. We got our candidate. No perfect squares here.
32 = 2^5 = 4^2*2. Includes a perfect square 4
25 = 5^2. Perfect square 25
12 = 2^2*3 = Perfect square 4.

All but 42 have perfect square in them as a factor.
*******************************************

Just write down all perfect squares greater than 1 and less than 75;
4,9,16,25,36,49,64

75 = 25*3. 25 is a perfect square
42 = 7*2*3. No perfect squares here
32 = 16*2. 16 is a perfect square
25. 25 is a perfect square
12 = 4*3. 4 is a perfect square

Ans: "B"
*********************************

I guess this is also somewhere else in the forum.

Since the factors of 42 are: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 21, and 42, we see that none of those factors are perfect squares greater than 1.

Answer: B

We have to find a Divisor > 1. which is not = D^2

find the factors of all the options

Just browsing over the options, can make you realize B as the answer

2*3*7
