Find the prime factorization of $1555$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $1555$ is divisible by $2$.

Since it is not divisible, move to the next prime number.

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $1555$ is divisible by $3$.

Since it is not divisible, move to the next prime number.

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $1555$ is divisible by $5$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $1555$ by ${\color{green}5}$: $\frac{1555}{5} = {\color{red}311}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}311}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}311}$: $\frac{311}{311} = {\color{red}1}$.

Since we have obtained $1$, we are done.

Now, just count the number of occurences of the divisors (green numbers), and write down the prime factorization: $1555 = 5 \cdot 311$.

The prime factorization is $1555 = 5 \cdot 311$A.
