30 = 2 * 3 *5 24= 2 * 2 *2 * 3 If that helps ?

factors of 30 = 1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30 Lets fix x=1 and say x<=y<=z now (y,z) can be (1,30) (2,15) (3,10) (5,6) No more. If we fix x=2, (x<=y<=z) (y,z) = (3,5) No more If we fix x=3, (x<=y<=z) (y,z) =None So we come to a halt Now note that x,y,z are all symmetrical, all x,y,z can be permuted in 3! ways except a special case when 2 are equal, then no. of permutations will be 3!/2! Ans = (4*3!) + (1* 3!/2!) =27 Unless I'd have done something wrong ?
