Find the prime factorization of $2748$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $2748$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $2748$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{2748}{2} = {\color{red}1374}$.

Determine whether $1374$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $1374$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{1374}{2} = {\color{red}687}$.

Determine whether $687$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $687$ is divisible by $3$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $687$ by ${\color{green}3}$: $\frac{687}{3} = {\color{red}229}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}229}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}229}$: $\frac{229}{229} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $2748 = 2^{2} \cdot 3 \cdot 229$.

The prime factorization is $2748 = 2^{2} \cdot 3 \cdot 229$A.
