$$2^6*3^5*5^4*6^3=2^9*3^8*5^4$$

$$360=2^3*3^2*5$$

all factors of $$2^9*3^8*5^4$$ that can be written as multiples of $$360$$ will be of the form $$2^3*3^2*5*p$$

therefore $$2^9*3^8*5^4=2^3*3^2*5*p$$

or $$p= 2^6*3^6*5^3$$

Now the number of factors of $$p=(1+6)*(1+6)*(1+3)=196$$

To find out the number of multiples of 360, let's first find out its factors and then take them out of the total factors. This will ensure that the remaining factors will always include the factors of 360.

Let's solve now:

360 = 9 * 4 * 10 = $$3^2*2^3*5^1$$

That means let's take two 3s, three 2s and one 5 out of the original number.

$$2^6*3^5*5^4*6^3$$

After taking the required factors out, we are left with : $$2^3*3^3*5^3*6^3$$

As per the formula, $$a^p*b^q*c^r$$, we have number of factors = (p+1)(q+1)(r+1), where a,b and c MUST be distinct primes.

Let's prime factorise all and club the common number, I will have the number as $$2^6*3^6*5^4$$ [Confused? Just split take 6 = 2*3 and then join 2 with existing 2s and 3 with existing 3s]

Therefore, for our question I can say, number of factors multiple of 360 = (6+1) ( 6+1)(3+1) = 49*4 = 196
