A Multiplication Based Logic Puzzle

134 and Level 1

134 is a composite number. 134 = 1 x 134 or 2 x 67. Factors of 134: 1, 2, 67, 134. Prime factorization: 134 = 2 x 67.

Here is a Complicated but fascinating number fact from Wikipedia that involves 134 on both sides of the equation:

{}_8C_1 + {}_8C_3 + {}_8C_4  is mathematical shorthand for

8c1 + 8c3 + 8c4.

Notice that each term has an 8 sub-scripted on the left side of the C and either 1, 3, or 4 sub-scripted on the right side of the C. If you do all the division, multiplication and addition, you will discover that {}_8C_1 + {}_8C_3 + {}_8C_4 = 8 + 56 + 70 = 134.

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