a two-digit number is a perfect square and has exactly 9 positive integral factors. What is the number?

How would i figure this out?

  • Algebra - ,

    I would start with two digit numbers...
    100 factors 2,5,25,4,50,10, 100, 1 eight factors check that.
    81 factors 3,9,27,81,1six factors
    64 2,4,16,32, 64,1,8 seven factors

    recheck those, and work downward to find one with nine factors.

    There aren't that many two-digit perfect squares. I'd simply try them all out, starting with the largest I can think of (since that's most likely to have nine factors) and work backwards until I find one that works.
