In music, a single beat consists of one quarter note, which can be subdivided into two eighth notes. Each eighth note can be further subdivided into two sixteenth notes. How many four-beat rhythms can be constructed from quarter notes, eighth notes, and sixteenth notes?
Solution to yesterday’s problem:
All you need to do in this problem is write the factorial out as its entire product, like this:
Then split each factor into its prime factors:
We don’t need to go any further because we already have the greatest prime factor we’re going to find here: 13.
