No, my understanding is that we only want numbers that factor as 2^X * 3^Y * 5^Z.

    Roy Johnson,
    You are correct, I am wrong. I was so focused on lazy evaluation that I misunderstood "how do you generate the series of numbers composed of a given list of prime factors, where each can be used an unlimited number of times?" To me, that meant any positive multiple of any factor was valid.

    Cheers - L~R
