Divisors strange

Hello everyone.

I have posted here one of my observations regarding the divisors of some numbers.

I don't know if it is already a law in Mathematics or not but here I go...

I noticed that the even composite numbers which have 6 distinct divisors(including 1 and itself) ,the product of these divisors always came equal to the cube of that number.

e.g. 12=12346121*2*3*4*6*12=12312^{3}

similar examples are 18,20,28,32,42,44..................

2nd part

I also noticed that even composite numbers with 8 distinct divisors,the product of the divisors was equal to n4n^{4}

e.g. 24=12346812241*2*3*4*6*8*12*24=24424^{4}

similar examples are: 30,40,......

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Oh! I had not read that nor did I knew.Thank you very much,now I have came to know that it already exists.

Sir,I have some more findings in probability and geometry which I am not sure that if it already exists or not. Can I post it on Brilliant?

Sure. Do you best to provide an explanation of why the statement is true, or what you've tried to demonstrate that it is true.
