5000 can be prime factored to 100 x 50.

100 --> 50x2 --> 25x2x2--> 5x5x2x2
50 --> 25x2 --> 5x5x2

5^4 and 2^3 -->> 4+3=7.

The prime factorization of 5000 can be written as 2^3 5^4

$$5000 = 5 *1000 = 5 * 10 * 100 = 5 *10 * 10 *10 = 5 * 5*2 *5*2 *5*2 = 5^4 2^3$$

$$5,000 = 2^x5^y$$

x =3
y=4

x + y = 3 + 4 = 7.

E is the best answer.

5000= 2^3*5^4
2^3*5^4 =2^x*5^y
or say x+y= 7
