Find the prime factorization of $2885$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $2885$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $2885$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $2885$ is divisible by $5$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $2885$ by ${\color{green}5}$: $\frac{2885}{5} = {\color{red}577}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}577}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}577}$: $\frac{577}{577} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $2885 = 5 \cdot 577$.

The prime factorization is $2885 = 5 \cdot 577$A.
