Find the prime factorization of $4279$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $4279$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $4279$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $4279$ is divisible by $5$.

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

The next prime number is $7$.

Determine whether $4279$ is divisible by $7$.

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

The next prime number is $11$.

Determine whether $4279$ is divisible by $11$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $4279$ by ${\color{green}11}$: $\frac{4279}{11} = {\color{red}389}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}389}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}389}$: $\frac{389}{389} = {\color{red}1}$.

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