### I do not understand the

### I needed to go to bed. I was

I needed to go to bed. I was finding the square of 17,640 which is just under 133. Missed a zero. Thanks,

### I solved the question by

I solved the question by dividing K=2520/ with each answer choice to find an answer 'k' which a perfect square.

2520/35= Not a perfect square, 2520/105=not a perfect square,2520/140=not a perfect square, 2520/210= not a perfect square

2520/70= 36( A perfect square) ### That's a perfectly valid

That's a perfectly valid strategy - nice work!!
By DIVIDING each answer choice, you're removing all of the terms that are NOT part of a perfect square, leaving only the perfect squares.
Awesome!!

### This is great for TEST THE

This is great for TEST THE ANSWERS. When testing the answers, always start with B or D first. Let's pick B. Plug 70 in for k to get (2520)(70) = 176,400. Hit that luscious square root on your calculator to get a whole number: 420. Really easy as that. Now you should also try answer A just to make sure that that's not the lowest value for k that can give a whole number too. Got the answer in less than 30 seconds.
