    4th Grade Math: How many factors does the number 121 have? Answer: 3 (1, 11, 121)

    This answer is wrong. The correct answer is any number greater than 3. That is because the number 1 is also 1X1 or 1X1X1 etc.

    The problem is that the question is malformed. and should read. Excluding 1, how many factors does the number 121 have? The answer now is 2.
