# Number with the most factors

This question doesn't have an actual answer. Here's why:

We have a value X (doesn't matter what it equals).

pick any integer greater than one (i'll choose 3)

Y = 3*X

now Y has all the factors of X , and then one more.

Example:

X=15 (15 = 3*5, so 2 factors)

Y = 3*X (45 = 3*3*5, 3 factors (2 unique))

If you want a number with the most 'unique' factors, that doesn't work either. Just make sure the number you pick (my 3 in this case) is not factor of X to begin with.

Example: I'll chose 2 this time because 2 is not a factor of 15.

X=15 (15=3*5, 2 factors)

Y=2*X (30= 2*3*5, 3 factors (all unique))

### Which number is greater then 25 and has the most factors?

There is no such number with "most factors"; if you have a number with a certain number of factors, you can always multiply it by 2, or by 3, etc., to get another number that has even more factors.

### What is the number with the most factors?

There isn't any, and it is quite simple to prove that. Suppose there is a number with the most factors and suppose that number is X. Now consider Y = 2*X. Y has all the factors of X and it has another factor, which is 2. So Y has more factors than X. This contradicts the statement that X has the most factors. Therefore, there is no number with the most factors.
