For how many positive integer values of $n$ is $3^n$ a factor of $15!$?
We first determine the largest positive integer value of n such that 3^n | 15!. We determine this by counting the number of factors of 3 in the product. There are 5 multiples of 3 in the product, and there is one extra factor of 3 in 9, so there are a total of 5 + 1 = 6 factors of 3 in the product of the first 15 integers. So, for all n between 1 and 6, inclusive, 3^n is a factor of 15!
so it is 6
