The operation star is defined as a star b = a^2/b. For how many integer values of x will the value of 10 star x be a positive integer?

a * b   = a^2/b

 

a  =  10

 

So

 

a^2  = 100

 

So...we are looking for all the divisors of 100.....these are

 

1  2   4   5    10    20     25    50     100

 

So...x  will take on 9 values
