Q:
# The prime factorization of a number is 2^3*3^2*5. Which is a true statement about the factors of the number?1. Fifteen is a factor of the number because both 3 and 5 are prime factors.2. Fifteen is not a factor of the number because 15 is odd and the number is even.3. Sixteen is a factor for the number because 2^3=8 and 16 is divisible by 8.4. Sixteen is not a factor of the number because the exponent of 2 is not even.

Accepted Solution

A:

2^3 = 8

3^2 = 9

8 * 9 * 5 = 360

Β 15 is a factor of 360, so the answer would beΒ 1. Fifteen is a factor of the number because both 3 and 5 are prime factors

3^2 = 9

8 * 9 * 5 = 360

Β 15 is a factor of 360, so the answer would beΒ 1. Fifteen is a factor of the number because both 3 and 5 are prime factors
