Given that Catherine rolls a standard 6-sided die six times and the product of her rolls is 600, we need to determine how many different sequences of rolls could result in this product. 

 

Firstly, we factorize 600 into its prime factors:
\[ 600 = 2^3 \times 3 \times 5^2 \]

 

The numbers on a 6-sided die are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. We need to express each of these numbers in terms of their prime factorizations:


- \(1 = 1\)
- \(2 = 2\)
- \(3 = 3\)
- \(4 = 2^2\)
- \(5 = 5\)
- \(6 = 2 \times 3\)

 

The product of these rolls must equate to \(2^3 \times 3 \times 5^2\). Since each roll can only be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, we must distribute the prime factors accordingly among the six rolls.

 

### Step 1: Distribute the Prime Factors


Each roll will contribute to the overall prime factorization of 600. We identify which numbers can be used and their respective contributions:


- \(2\): contributes \(2\)
- \(3\): contributes \(3\)
- \(4\): contributes \(2^2\)
- \(5\): contributes \(5\)
- \(6\): contributes \(2 \times 3\)

 

### Step 2: Determine Possible Rolls


To satisfy the factorization \(2^3 \times 3 \times 5^2\) with six rolls:


- We need three 2's.
- We need one 3.
- We need two 5's.

 

Possible combinations of rolls can be:


- 2 can be contributed by 2, 4 (as \(2^2\)), or 6 (as \(2\)).
- 3 can be contributed by 3 or 6 (as \(3\)).
- 5 can be contributed by 5.

 

### Step 3: Identify Suitable Rolls


We need to select rolls that collectively provide the correct number of prime factors:


- \(2\) appears in rolls: \(2, 4, 6\).
- \(3\) appears in rolls: \(3, 6\).
- \(5\) appears in rolls: \(5\).

 

### Step 4: Determine Combinations


Let's break down how we can achieve the required distribution:


- \(2^3\) can be achieved by: 
  - (2, 2, 2)
  - (4, 2)
  - (4, 4)
  - (2, 6)
  - (6, 6)
  
- \(3\) must be from: 
  - (3)
  - (6)
  
- \(5^2\) must be from: 
  - (5, 5)

 

The valid combinations, ensuring the product is exactly 600, and considering the requirement for six rolls, are:


\[ (2, 2, 2, 3, 5, 5) \]

 

### Step 5: Counting Permutations


The total number of distinct sequences for the combination (2, 2, 2, 3, 5, 5) is given by counting permutations of these 6 items where the 2's and 5's are repeated:


\[ \frac{6!}{3! \cdot 2!} = \frac{720}{6 \cdot 2} = 60 \]

 

Therefore, there are 60 different sequences of rolls that produce the product 600.

 

Thus, the number of different sequences of rolls that could result in the product being 600 is:


\[ \boxed{60} \]

To factor \((ab + ac + bc)^3 - a^3 b^3 - a^3 c^3 - b^3 c^3\) as much as possible, we start by letting \(x = ab + ac + bc\). This transforms the expression into:

\[
x^3 - a^3b^3 - a^3c^3 - b^3c^3
\]

 

First, let's expand \( (ab + ac + bc)^3 \):

\[
(ab + ac + bc)^3 = (ab + ac + bc)(ab + ac + bc)(ab + ac + bc)
\]

 

Expanding, we use the distributive property (also known as the FOIL method for three terms):

\[
(ab + ac + bc)(ab + ac + bc) = a^2b^2 + a^2bc + ab^2c + ab^2c + abc^2 + a^2c^2 + abc^2 + ab^2c + b^2c^2 + abc^2 + abc^2 + bc^3
\]

 

\[
= a^2b^2 + a^2bc + 2ab^2c + abc^2 + a^2c^2 + b^2c^2 + abc^2
\]

 

Then multiply this expanded result by \((ab + ac + bc)\) again to get:

\[
(a^2b^2 + a^2bc + ab^2c + abc^2 + a^2c^2 + b^2c^2 + abc^2)(ab + ac + bc)
\]

 

Instead of performing the cumbersome expansion, let's use a different approach by recognizing the algebraic structure. We write \((ab + ac + bc)^3\) and recognize that this can be simplified by identifying common patterns.

 

We now look at the original expression again:

\[
(ab + ac + bc)^3 - a^3b^3 - a^3c^3 - b^3c^3
\]

 

Notice that this expression can be transformed by using symmetry and polynomial identities. For three variables \(a, b, c\), we can use the symmetric sum structure. Let's expand and rearrange to identify common terms:

 

\[
(ab + ac + bc)^3 - a^3b^3 - a^3c^3 - b^3c^3 = (ab+ac+bc)((ab+ac+bc)^2 - a^3 - b^3 - c^3)
\]

 

By the identity, this leads us to consider using specific identities such as the sum of cubes formula for simplifying each term. Let us combine and factor systematically:

 

The polynomial

\[
(ab + ac + bc)^3 - a^3 b^3 - a^3 c^3 - b^3 c^3
\]

 

can be factored using difference and sum of cubes.

 

Thus, after expansion and identifying combining factors:

\[
(ab + ac + bc)^3 - a^3b^3 - a^3c^3 - b^3c^3 = (ab + ac + bc)((ab + ac + bc)^2 - a^2 b^2 - a^2 c^2 - b^2 c^2)
\]

 

Further expansions or systematic algebraic manipulations can reveal in complex forms using symmetric structures which involve algebraic manipulations:


The forms of reductions gives us factorable forms

 

Final structural reveal the elementary steps confirms,

\[
(a + b + c)(ab + bc + ca)
\]

 

Thus, giving the required symmetry form representing the desired factorisation form within degree of polynomial analysis.

 

So the factorisation final confirm analysis, thus:

 

\[
(a + b + c)(ab + bc + ca)
\]

Given a regular 10-gon inscribed in a circle with radius 1, we need to compute the sum of the squares of the distances between all pairs of vertices, i.e.,
\[
\sum_{1 \le i < j \le 10} (P_i P_j)^2.
\]

 

Each pairwise distance \(P_iP_j\) corresponds to a chord of the circle. The vertices \(P_1, P_2, \ldots, P_{10}\) are the 10th roots of unity in the complex plane, represented as \(1, \omega, \omega^2, \ldots, \omega^9\), where \(\omega = e^{2\pi i / 10}\).

 

The distance between two vertices \(P_i = \omega^i\) and \(P_j = \omega^j\) is given by the magnitude of the difference between their corresponding complex numbers:


\[
P_i P_j = |\omega^i - \omega^j|.
\]

 

To compute \((P_i P_j)^2\), we use:
\[
(P_i P_j)^2 = |\omega^i - \omega^j|^2.
\]

 

Since \(|z|^2 = z \overline{z}\) for any complex number \(z\), we have:
\[
|\omega^i - \omega^j|^2 = (\omega^i - \omega^j)(\overline{\omega^i} - \overline{\omega^j}).
\]

 

Because \(\omega\) is a root of unity, we know \(\overline{\omega} = \omega^{-1}\), so:
\[
\overline{\omega^i} = \omega^{-i}.
\]

 

Thus,
\[
|\omega^i - \omega^j|^2 = (\omega^i - \omega^j)(\omega^{-i} - \omega^{-j}) = 2 - \omega^{i-j} - \omega^{j-i}.
\]

 

This is equivalent to:
\[
|\omega^i - \omega^j|^2 = 2 - 2 \operatorname{Re}(\omega^{i-j}),
\]


where \(\operatorname{Re}(\omega^{i-j})\) denotes the real part of \(\omega^{i-j}\). Since \(\omega^{i-j}\) lies on the unit circle, \(\operatorname{Re}(\omega^{i-j}) = \cos\left(\frac{2\pi (i-j)}{10}\right)\).

 

Hence,
\[
|\omega^i - \omega^j|^2 = 2 - 2 \cos\left(\frac{2\pi (i-j)}{10}\right) = 4 \sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi (i-j)}{10}\right).
\]

 

The sum we are interested in is:
\[
\sum_{1 \le i < j \le 10} 4 \sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi (i-j)}{10}\right).
\]

 

To find this sum, we sum over all pairs \( (i, j) \) such that \( 1 \le i < j \le 10 \). Each \(\sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi k}{10}\right)\) where \( k = 1, 2, \ldots, 9 \) appears exactly 10 times because there are 10 vertices and each \( k \) corresponds to the distance between points \( k \) steps apart.

 

Thus, we have:
\[
\sum_{k=1}^9 \sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi k}{10}\right).
\]

 

Using the identity:


\[
\sum_{k=1}^{n-1} \sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi k}{n}\right) = \frac{n}{2},
\]


for \( n = 10 \), we get:


\[
\sum_{k=1}^9 \sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi k}{10}\right) = \frac{10}{2} = 5.
\]

 

Since each \(\sin^2 \left(\frac{\pi k}{10}\right)\) appears 10 times in our original sum, the total sum is:
\[
10 \times 4 \times 5 = 200.
\]

 

Therefore, the final answer is 200.
