\begin{align}&=2\times 2 \times 5 \times 7 \\&={{2}^{2}}\times 5\times 7\end{align}

(ii) $$156$$

Prime factors of $$156$$

\begin{align}&=2\times 2\times 3\times 13 \\ &={{2}^{2}}\times 3\times 13 \end{align}

(iii) $$3825$$

Prime factors of $$3825$$

\begin{align}&=3\times 3\times 5\times 5\times 17 \\ &={{3}^{2}}\times {{5}^{2}}\times 17\end{align}

(iv) $$5005$$
