Answer

$960 = 2^6\times3\times5$

Work Step by Step

We divide $960$ by $2$ until it's not possible anymore. $960/2^6 = 960/64 = 15$ We divide $15$ by $3$ until it's not possible anymore. $15/3 = 5$ We divide $5$ by $5$ until it's not possible anymore. $5/5 = 1$ Therefore, $960 = 2^6\times3\times5$.
