Find the prime factorization of $4746$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $4746$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $4746$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{4746}{2} = {\color{red}2373}$.

Determine whether $2373$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $2373$ is divisible by $3$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $2373$ by ${\color{green}3}$: $\frac{2373}{3} = {\color{red}791}$.

Determine whether $791$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $791$ is divisible by $5$.

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

The next prime number is $7$.

Determine whether $791$ is divisible by $7$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $791$ by ${\color{green}7}$: $\frac{791}{7} = {\color{red}113}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}113}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}113}$: $\frac{113}{113} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $4746 = 2 \cdot 3 \cdot 7 \cdot 113$.

The prime factorization is $4746 = 2 \cdot 3 \cdot 7 \cdot 113$A.
