I’m working through the Tickbox #2 quiz and need some help understanding a concept discussed in the explanation video for question 29. At timestamp 32:33, Greg says, “Because 17 is a prime number, it can only be (prime number) raised to 16.” I’m having trouble grasping this idea. Can someone explain this in more detail or provide additional context?

How do you find how many factors are there in a number (using the prime factorisation trick)?

Hi ! Appreciate your reply, Understood !

Thank you!
