Find the prime factorization of $4532$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $4532$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $4532$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{4532}{2} = {\color{red}2266}$.

Determine whether $2266$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $2266$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{2266}{2} = {\color{red}1133}$.

Determine whether $1133$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $1133$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $1133$ is divisible by $5$.

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

The next prime number is $7$.

Determine whether $1133$ is divisible by $7$.

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

The next prime number is $11$.

Determine whether $1133$ is divisible by $11$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $1133$ by ${\color{green}11}$: $\frac{1133}{11} = {\color{red}103}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}103}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}103}$: $\frac{103}{103} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $4532 = 2^{2} \cdot 11 \cdot 103$.

The prime factorization is $4532 = 2^{2} \cdot 11 \cdot 103$A.
