14 = GCF of M and 210
M = possible values

GCF = Greatest common denominator
Now, let’s start decomposing
=> 210 | 2
=> 105 | 2
=>  35 | 5
=> 7 | 7
=> 1

Thus, 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210

Now let’s find the factors of 14
=> 14 | 2
=> 7 | 7
=> 1

Thus, 2 x 7 = 14

Notice that’s there’s no 14 in 210 shown factors, but the only GCF found is 7.
Thus, the value of M that we’re looking for is infinite. All numbers that has the GCF of 7 are applicable.
