Which of the following is a multiple of 4! + 6?

a) 2!+3
b) 4!+12
c) 5!+6
d) 5!+30
e) 8!+12

Spoiler: :: My Approach
Ans: D
My approach --> I can solve it mathematically i..e from choice D factor out 5(4!+6). Therefore its correct.

But what's the concept in this question. Can we solve this by considering prime factors?

Personally, I would have started it with the stimulus and yes, considering prime factors:

4! + 6 = 4 * 3 * 2 + 6 = 6(4 + 1) = 6 * 5 = 2 * 3 * 5

So the correct answer is the one which is a multiple of 2, of 3 and of 5.

by scanning thru the choices
5*(4!+6 ) = 5! + 30
