Catherine rolls a -sided die five times, and the product of her rolls is 300. How many different sequences of rolls could there have been? (The order of the rolls matters.)

Hi.  Some people have posted questions similar to this one but their not that same.  I've looked at those ones and tried to apply it to this one, but it was always wrong.  Pls halp.

The prime factorization of 300 is 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5, so you try to find the number of combinations of 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 5

I have gotten that answer before.  It is incorrect.  Can you show how you got it?

I'm trying to figure out a smarter way to calcaulte the combinitions that don't involve casework, cause i'm too lazy to do it

300 factors as     5^2 * 2^2 * 3

I see the possible identifiable sequences as

5 * 5 * 2 * 2 * 3 =    5!/(2! * 2!)  = 30

5 * 5 * 4 * 3 * 1 =    5! / 2! =  60

5 * 5  * 6 * 2 * 1 =  5! / 2! =  60

I get  150

Anyone else ???

Although  I don't know the answer to this.....here is a  very similar question answered by amy :

I think that you only need to change a few numbers and  then  graph the inequalities.....it should give  you a trianglular area that you can  calculate  to the total area
