$$x$$ and $$y$$ are integers and $$180x=y^3$$ --> $$180x$$ equals to cube of an integer ($$y^3$$). $$180x=2^2*3^2*5*x=y^3$$. The smallest value of $$x$$ for which $$2^2*3^2*5*x$$ is a cube of an integer is when $$x=2*3*5^2$$ (to complete powers of 2, 3 and 5 to cubes). In this case $$180x=(2^2*3^2*5)*(2*3*5^2)=(2*3*5)^3=cube \ of \ an \ integer$$. So $$x$$ is definitely divisible by $$2*3*5^2$$.

Answer: D.
