$$\frac{16}{\frac{1}{4}}=64$$. In factor form, $$64=2^6$$

$$\frac{16}{\frac{1}{4}}$$

This is the original expression given, or, at least, this was my interpretation. If it is wrong, please correct me. Dividing a number by a fraction is the same as multiplying a number by that fraction's reciprocal:

$$\frac{16}{\frac{1}{4}}=16*\frac{4}{1}=64$$

You said that you wanted your answer in factor form. Continue creating a tree of factors until you get down to prime numbers:

64

/\

8   *   8

/\         /\

2 * 4    4 * 2

/\     /\

2*2   2*2

Combine the bolded numbers, and you are done! There are 6 2's.

$$2*2*2*2*2*2=2^6$$
