Abstract: Given a finite solvable group , we say that has property if every set of distinct irreducible character degrees of is (setwise) relatively prime. Let be the smallest positive integer such that satisfies property . We derive a bound, which is quadratic in , for the total number of irreducible character degrees of . Three exceptional cases occur; examples are constructed which verify the sharpness of the bound in each of these special cases.
