Find the prime factorization of $3484$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $3484$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $3484$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{3484}{2} = {\color{red}1742}$.

Determine whether $1742$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $1742$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{1742}{2} = {\color{red}871}$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $5$.

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

The next prime number is $7$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $7$.

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

The next prime number is $11$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $11$.

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

The next prime number is $13$.

Determine whether $871$ is divisible by $13$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $871$ by ${\color{green}13}$: $\frac{871}{13} = {\color{red}67}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}67}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}67}$: $\frac{67}{67} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $3484 = 2^{2} \cdot 13 \cdot 67$.

The prime factorization is $3484 = 2^{2} \cdot 13 \cdot 67$A.
