Consider the following problem, whose answer is an ordered list:

<problem>
<startouttext /><p>List all the factors of 108 from smallest to largest.</p>
<p><b>Important Note: </b> List the factors separated by commas, and enclose
</formularesponse>
</problem>

I tested this with other examples and it seems that if the correct answer is
an ordered list then the last element in the list is also accepted as a

Furthermore, it seems that any list whose last element is 108 is accepted as

Can anyone explain this?

Thanks,
Justin

P.S. I could have made the answer an unordered list, except this would
involve checking about 479 million permutations.
