Re: The number of distinct prime factors of 100,000 [#permalink]
More DISTINCT prime factors in B. Don't be like dumb me and find the total number of factors of each wasting precious time. Read the question.

The number of distinct prime factors of 100,000 [#permalink]
The keyword in this problem is distinct. If you missed it, you will not only be wasting time but also get the wrong answer.

Quantity A

The number of distinct prime factors of 100,000 are 5 and 2

Quantity B

The number of distinct prime factors of 99,000 are 3, 5, 2 and 11

Quantity B is the greatest.
