Method of solving this CAT Question from Number Theory - Digits: Product of digits of a number is k, find all possible numbers that could result in this.

Two digit numbers; The two digits can be 4 and 7: Two possibilities 47 and 74.
Three-digit numbers: The three digits can be 1, 4 and 7: 3! Or 6 possibilities.
