OEF Factoris --- Introduction ---

This module currently contains 15 elementary exercises on the prime factorization of integers: existence, uniqueness, relation with gcd and lcm, etc.

Number of divisors

Give an integer which has exactly positive divisors ( 1 and are divisors of ) and which is divisible by at least two three distinct primes.

Divisors of an integer

Let be an integer with exactly 3 distinct prime factors:
