## Start with hints

Do you really need a hint? Try it first!

Any number is divisible by all of its factors. For eaxmple 50 is divisible by \(2,5,10\) and \(25\) out of these their are some prime numbers called Prime factors.

The prime factor of 100,000 are only 2 and 5, the rest of them are not the prime factor, they are composite factor. Also The prime factorization of $100,000$ is $2^5 \cdot 5^5$.

Any Number which divides 100,000 must be multiple of 2 and (or) 5. So it can be 10=5×2 or \(200=2^{3} 5^{2}\).

Since prime factorization of $100,000$ is $2^5 \cdot 5^5$. Thus We can find possible value of a,b,c and d being between 0 and 5.
