    divisibility and divisor sets

    Hi i need some help on a proof on divisor sets. Not sure where to start.

    Given any number n, can you find a number m such that "divisor set"(m) has n elements or are there some restrictions on the number of elements in a divisor set?

    Thanks

    What is your definition of "divisor set of m"? The set of all numbers that evenly divide m?

    basically the factors of m

    eg divisor set(6) = {1,2,3,6}
