Find the prime factorization of $730$.

### Solution

Start with the number $2$.

Determine whether $730$ is divisible by $2$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $730$ by ${\color{green}2}$: $\frac{730}{2} = {\color{red}365}$.

Determine whether $365$ is divisible by $2$.

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

The next prime number is $3$.

Determine whether $365$ is divisible by $3$.

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

The next prime number is $5$.

Determine whether $365$ is divisible by $5$.

It is divisible, thus, divide $365$ by ${\color{green}5}$: $\frac{365}{5} = {\color{red}73}$.

The prime number ${\color{green}73}$ has no other factors then $1$ and ${\color{green}73}$: $\frac{73}{73} = {\color{red}1}$.

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: $730 = 2 \cdot 5 \cdot 73$.

The prime factorization is $730 = 2 \cdot 5 \cdot 73$A.
