 Oodles of Factors II (Posted on 2010-10-11)
A. What is the lowest base 12 positive integer that has exactly 10 (base 12) distinct positive factors?

B. Exactly 1,000 (base 12) distinct positive factors?

C. Exactly 1,000,000 (base 12) distinct positive factors?

For example, the distinct positive factors of 40 (base 12) are the base 12 numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 14, 20, and 40. Accordingly, 40 (base 12) has precisely A (base 12) distinct positive factors.

thank you for pointing out my mistake, I double checked my calculation and you are correct that I left out 43 and 47 in the factorization.  Adding those two causes 9*6*3^3*2^11 = 12^6.  I am relieved that it was not a problem with the code itself.
