What's the point of having other people solve it (for you to ace the challenge)?????

If you have a guess for N, it is super easy to check ...

First off, the Kangaroo is not really an Olympiad. Wait until you see a real one...

There is very little benefit to be gained from seeing other people solve questions. You will only get good at these things by doing them yourself. Lemmas and theorems are overrated for this kind of challenge - they will not set questions that require anything exotic. You just have to use what you know and apply it in clever ways, plus some common sense.

As for your question, why don't you check it yourself? Does 18 have six divisors? Is one of them 9? Do the others multiply to give 648? You won't have TSR to help you do this in the exam...

Exactly. Thanks for spelling it out for him.
