since then .
Can you multiply 2 different positive a and b to get, say 9 where neither a or b are 9?
How about 1 and 5?
Here is the question:
a, b and c are 3 different, positive integers, and (ab)^2 = abc.
Which of the following is a possible value for c?
I know the answer is 12, but i do not understand how to get this, aside from guess and check.
Any help would be appreciated.
