Let n = c x p, where p is a prime number, and c is a composite number less than p. The number c has three unique prime factors. How many unique prime factor does n^2 have?

  1. Steve

    all the prime factors of c are less than p, so n has 4 unique prime factors.

    n^2 does not have any new prime factors, so it also has 4.
