Doubt from PnC and Number Theory

How to do these kind of problms? Any General Method is there?

bro, the general method is by selecting the needed factors only…

For A, 2 should not be taken. So, now we choose from the rest of the factors, and the answer will be (1+1)(2+1)(1+1) - 1 = 11

For B, Atleast one 2 must be taken (for it to be even), and 3 must not be taken… now choose from the remaining, which gives (2+1)(2+1)(1+1) … here, no need to subtract 1, as there arent any improper divisors…

For C, use those GP formulas, without taking 7.
so, sum will be

for D, 5 and 2 must be included

All factors must be divisible by 10.

We can represent the sum of factors as:
10(1+2+2^2)(1+3)(1+5)(1+7) (try expanding, and you will get that they are the sum of all such terms.

And the product will give the answer


Thank You for typing out the. Solution bro :yum:


i havent fully explained C and D, esp D… so if you want, i can fill it out :smiley:
