### Counting Factors

Is there an efficient way to work out how many factors a large number has?

### Summing Consecutive Numbers

15 = 7 + 8 and 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4. Can you say which numbers can be expressed as the sum of two or more consecutive integers?

### Helen's Conjecture

Helen made the conjecture that "every multiple of six has more factors than the two numbers either side of it". Is this conjecture true?

$32 \times 46 = 1472$
$23 \times 64 = 1472$
