Hi just trying to assess how much time to spend on questions of this type. What level difficulty level would you say this is?

This is a SUPER HARD question. It's definitely 750+

Hi Brent, if we consider any negative value for n for example n = -2
We get 72/(6^-2) = 72/(1\36) = (72)(36)
This makes 6^-2 a divisor of 72, in the same way for the above ques we can consider any -ve value for n?

That's a great idea, but we can't say that 6^(-2) a divisor of 72.
Divisors must be INTEGERS, and 6^(-2) = 1/16 (which is not an integer)


Good question
