\(24*385 = 2*2*2*3*5*7*11 = 2^3*3^1*5^1*7^1*11^1\)
So number of factors of the product \(24*385 = (3+1)*(1+1)*(1+1)*(1+1)*(1+1) = 64\)
Out of the 64 factors, 2,3,5,7,11 are the prime factors
So, the portion of the set of unique factors of the product of 24 and 385 are prime factors = \(\frac{5}{64}\)

Answer c:
totoal number of factors of: 2^3*3*5*7*11 (note the product can be written as this) = (3+1)*2*2*2*2 = 64 total prime factors = 5 ratio is 5/64 so C

product of 24 and 385
24*385 = \(2^3\)*3*5*7*11 total number of factors = (3+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1) = 4*2*2*2*2 = 64 total number of prime factors = 2,3,5,7,11 = 5
portion that are prime factors = \(\frac{5}{64}\)
C is the answer

24= 2^3 * 3 385= 5*7*11 Product= 2^3 * 3 * 5 * 7 * 11 Total factors of their products> (3+1) * (1+1) * (1+1)* (1+1)* (1+1) = 4*16= 64 Primes= 2, 3, 5, 7 and 11. So answer= 5/64

24= 2^3 * 3. Total possible factors = (3+1)*(1+1) = 8 385=5*7*11. Total possible factors =2*2*2=8 Total possible factors of 24 and 385 = 8*8=64 Unique prime factors= 2,3,5,7,11 = 5 Hence 5/64. Option C

in the product of 24 and 385 prime factorisation gives \(2^3\) * 3 * 5 * 11*7 so total factors are 4 * 2*2*2*2 which gives 64 unique factors out of which only 5 are prime factors 2,3,5,7 and 11 so the ans is 5/64 ie C

C
Factorize the product of 24 * 385 we get 2^3*3*5*7*11
So total prime factors are 5, and total no of factors are (3+1)*(1+1)^4 = 64
Total portion of prime factors : 5/64

answer has to be C. total number of factors of 385 and 24 is 64. (by breaking down into primefactors and calculating factors) Prime numbers in the multiplication are 2 3 5 7 11 So the answer is 5/64

Prime factorization of 24*385=2^3*3*7*11*5 Total factors = 4*2*2*2*2 = 64 (using the method for factors  multiple of each prime's power +1) Total Primes = 2+3+11+7+5=5 So portion of unique factors  5/64 IMO C

What portion of the set of unique factors of the product of 24 and 385 are prime factors?
This question is very easy. To solve it all you need to know is that the total number of factors of a product is the product of the individual factors. Total number of factors of the product = 24=> 2^3*3^1 => 4*2 => 8 . & for 385 => 11^1*5^1*7^1 => 2*2*2 = 8 so total is 8*8 = 64
Now for prime numbers = 2, 3,7,5,11 so total is 5
The answer is 5/64.
(A) 5/7
(B) 7/32
(C) 5/64
(D) 6/64
(E) 7/64
Hence C.

IMO : C
What portion of the set of unique factors of the product of 24 and 385 are prime factors?
factors of 24=1,2,3,4,6,8,12,24 = 8 factors factors of 385=1, 5, 7, 11, 35, 55, 77, 385 =8 factors
factors of 24*385 = 8*8=64,
prime factors among all factors
2,3,5,7,11 =5
so solution = prime factors/Total factors
=5/64

Product 0f 24 * 385, breaking in prime factors: => \(2^3\) * 3 * 5 * 7 *11 Total number of factors => 4 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 => 64 (as \(a^2\) will have (2+1) factors) Total number of unique prime factors = 2,3,5,7,11 => 5
So portion => 5/64
IMO the answer is C.

What portion of the set of unique factors of the product of 24 and 385 are prime factors?
Total factors: 2^3*3*5*7*11 (3+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1)=64
5 unique prime factors  2,3,5,7,11
Therefore the answer is C 5/64
