For this kind of questions, remember a formula:

[highlight]If the prime factorization of a number is in the form of a^x*b^y*c^z, then the

Number of factors = (x+1)*(y+1)*(z+1)[/highlight]

Now, coming to the given question,
number of factors = (5+1)*(4+1)*(3+1)*(2+1) = 6*5*4*3 = 360

Please check if the question you posted is correct and what is the source of the question.
