 2 Find the number of divisors of 1080 excluding the divisors which are perfect squares. A. 28 B. 30 C. 29 D. 31
See Answer & Explanation Lets Discuss
Explanation

1080=23 x 33 x 51

So, Number of divisors/factors = 4 x 4 x 2 = 32
Out of all the factors  1, 4(22), 9(33) and 36 (9 x 4) are perfect Squares.

So the answer is 32-4 = 28.

how do we easily find 1, 4, 9 and 36 are the perfect squares? Does it have any logic?

1080=2^3 x 3^3 x 5^1

we have to guess the factors which are perfect squares from above factors...

i.e.1, 4(2^2), 9(3^3) and 36 (2^2*3^3) are perfect Squares from above factors.

36 (2^2*3^3)-this is taken by breaking the factors of 1080 for getting a perfect square... This is how 36 is taken.

So the answer is 32-4 = 28.
