A Multiplication Based Logic Puzzle

  • 67 is a prime number.
  • Prime factorization: 67 is prime.
  • The exponent of prime number 67 is 1. Adding 1 to that exponent we get (1 + 1) = 2. Therefore 67 has exactly 2 factors.
  • Factors of 67: 1, 67
  • Factor pairs: 67 = 1 x 67
  • 67 has no square factors that allow its square root to be simplified. √67 ≈ 8.18535

How do we know that 67 is a prime number? If 67 were not a prime number, then it would be divisible by at least one prime number less than or equal to √67 ≈ 8.2. Since 67 cannot be divided evenly by 2, 3, 5, or 7, we know that 67 is a prime number.

67 is never a clue in the FIND THE FACTORS puzzles.


Shortly after I started blogging, Steve found me and became a leader in my cheering section. Even after the number of HIS followers grew exponentially, he still finds some time to show me support.

  1. I’m quite interested, not just for self-serving reasons, in the way social groups form and grow, especially in what it takes to hit that point where the growth becomes appreciably large. I think having a commenting community is an important part of it, but then, building that commenting community is just another part of drawing readers.


    • I don’t think there is any “point” at which anything new happens. It’s just good old-fashioned exponential growth. The more followers a blog has, the more likes and shares it will get and the more comments. The more this happens, the faster the community will grow.


  2. Thank you for reblogging this, Iva. Your blog is definitely one that deserves a huge audience. Keep at it!
