10 = 2 x 5

20 = 2² x 5

25 = 5²

30 = 2 x 3 x 5

34 = 2 x 17

n is not divisible by 30 as it would have to be divisible by 3 also.

You are not very bright, are you ? Don't you have a calculator ? Just TRY them, for god's sake.

2 x 5 x 7 x 17 = 1190

Now try dividing 1190 by each of the given numbers. (Hint : there are THREE answers.)
