9!=1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9
Writing in prime factorization form,
\(9!=2^7*3^4*5*7\)
No of distinct factors of 9! is (7+1)(4+1)(1+1)(1+1)=8*5*2*2=160
We need to find out the pair of positive integers whose product is 9!.
So, No of ways we can express 9! as a product of 2 +ve integers=\(\frac{160}{2}\)=80

Ans. (D)
