You can use the prime factorization of a number, written
as the product of powers of prime numbers, to find
the number of factors the number has. First, express the
number as a product of powers of prime numbers; for
example, 36=2 to power 2 3 to power 3
Then increase each exponent by 1,
and find the product of these increased exponents. This
product is the number of factors of the number. In the
example for 36,(2+1)(2+1) so 36 has 9 factors.
