### Algebra Puzzle 2

This is actually easier than the 3x3 :)

### Algebra Puzzle

Let's say that p=Pumpkin, u=Umbrella and a=Apple.
p+u+p=45
u+u+p=36
a+a+a=9
9÷3=3
a=3
p+u+a=30
u+u+a=21
p+p+a=39
p+p+a-a=39-3
=36
p+p=36
p=36÷2
=18
u+u+p-p=36-18
=18
u+u=18
u=18÷2
=9

Hence,
a=3
p=18
u=9

### Pumpkin Pie

The crumbly batter broke down beautifully in my mouth,the warm buttery paste spreading out over my tingling mouth. Spices wafted into my nose,warming it up in a second. The differentiated spices danced merrily in my mouth,and the familiar bursts of pumpkin settled in. In a moment,everything was gone.

### Prime Factorisation (continues...)

#25
2^4 X 3^5 X 7^2 X 11=2X2X2X2X3X3X3X3X3X7X7X11=2095632
Since the number ends with an even number, it should be divisable by 2.
First,I would divide in by 2. The answer would be 1047816.
2X1047816=2095632
1047816 would be a factor which is greater than 100.
It can also be divided by 4.
4X523908=2095632
It can also be divided by 6.
6X349272=2095632
