debbie pose la question :

Question from debbie, a parent:

hi, i have a daughter and she asked me a maths question I cannot solve. I was just wondering if you can give me the answers plus the working out so I could explain to my daughter,

1. The leftmost digit of a six-digit number N is 1. If this digit is removed and then written as a rightmost digit, the number thus obtained is three times N .Find N.

2. Four friends are racing together down a flight of stairs. A goes 2 steps at a time, B 3 steps at a time. C 4 steps at a time and D 5 steps at a time. The only steps which all four tread on are the top one and the bottom one. How many stairs in the flight were stepped on exactly once?

could this be true, or is it just coincidence, or am I just totally wrong?

Five Factors 1998-09-19
Derek Yau pose la question :
To whom it may concern,

I have difficulty in getting the solution to the following question:

Find 5 numbers that have exactly 5 factors.

I got 16, 81 but couldn't find the rest. I believe that in order to have 5 factors, it has to be a square number. Isn't it true? I guess there may be a pattern to this.

Thanks for your help.
