Emma plays with her square unit tiles by arranging all of them into different shaped rectangular figures. (For example, a 5 by 7 rectangle would use 35 tiles and would be considered the same rectangle as a 7 by 5 rectangle). Emma can form exactly ten different such rectangular figures that each use all of her tiles. What is the least number of tiles Emma could have?

since they have to be different

1x1 = 1

1x2 = 2

1x3 = 3

1x4=4

2x2 = 4

1x5=5

1x6=6

2x3=6

1x7=7

1x8=8

 

46 tiles

We are looking for the first positive integer with exactly 20  divisors

 

I believe this is

 

2^4 * 3 * 5 =  240

 

The divisors  are

1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,16,20,24,30,40,48,60,80,120,240

 

She can form rectangles

1 x 240              6 x 40

2 x 120              8  x 30

3 x  80              10 x 24          

4 x  60              12 x 20

5 x  48              15 x 16
