    starting with 360 = 10 x 36 break the 10 into primes and break 36 into primes 10 = 2 x 5 36 = 6 x 6 36 = 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5

    oh no.. it's because 10 and 36 can be broken up into prime numbers

    10 = 2 x 5 36 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 those two numbers combined (in primes) is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5

    2 x 2 x 2 is writing 2 three times , so we have 2^3 3 x 3 is writing 3 two times so we have 3^2

    yeah ... so in exponential form with primes 2^3 x 3^2 x 5

    hey wait... d is also valid too? unless order matters from smallest prime number to biggest prime number so it's b if order matters.
