How many factors of the number $$2^{6}∗3^{5}∗5^{4}∗6^{3}$$ are multiples of 360?

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

--> $$\frac{(2^{6}∗3^{5}∗5^{4}∗6^{3})}{(2^{3}*3^{2}*5)}= 2^{6}*3^{6}*5^{3}$$

The number of factors (6+1)(6+1)(3+1)= 49*4= 196

Prime Factors of 2^6∗3^5∗5^4∗6^3 = 2^9∗3^8∗5^4
Prime Factors of 360 = 3*2*3*2*2*5

now 360 is the multiple 2^6∗3^5∗5^4∗6^3
or 2^6∗3^5∗5^4∗6^3 = 360M
M= 2^6∗3^6∗5^3

No of Factors of M = (6+1)(6+1)(3+1) = 7* 7 *4 = 196

Any multiple of 360 can be written as 360*k, where k is an integer.

On prime factorizing 360, we get = $$2^3 *3^2 * 5^1$$

So, we can write the given number $$2^6*3^5*5^4*6^3$$ as : $$(2^3 * 3^2 * 5^1) * (2^6 * 3^6 * 5^3) = 360* (2^6 * 3^6 * 5^3)$$

Now, we just need to find the total number of factors of $$(2^6 * 3^6 * 5^3)$$. Because all the factors when multiplied with 360 will all be multiples of 360. Total factors of $$[2^6 * 3^6 * 5^3]$$

$$= (6 + 1) (6 + 1) (3 + 1)$$

$$= 7 * 7 * 4$$

$$= 196$$

360= 2^3*3^2*5
to determine factors of $$2^6*3^5*5^4*6^3$$ which are multiple of 360 ;
$$2^6*3^5*5^4*6^3$$ /2^3*3^2*5 = 2^6*3^6*5^3 ; 7*7*4 ; 196
IMO D

Breaking the given factors down further, we have:

2^6 x 3^5 x 5^4 x 2^3 x 3^3

2^9 x 3^8 x 5^4

and

360 = 36 x 10 = 6 x 6 x 2 x 5 = 2^3 x 3^2 x 5^1

Since (2^9 x 3^8 x 5^4)/(2^3 x 3^2 x 5^1) = 2^6 x 3^6 x 5^3, there are (6 + 1) (6 + 1) (3 + 1) = 7 x 7 x 4 = 196 multiples of 360.
