Prime factorization is the process of finding which prime numbers you need to multiply together to get your original number (in this case, 68).2 is the smallest prime number, so if you are trying to find the prime factorization of an even number (which we are), you should start by dividing the number by 2.so...68 &Atilde;&middot; 2 = 34so 2 is going to be the first prime number in our answer.34 is also an even number, so we can divide it again by 2.34 &Atilde;&middot; 2 = 17since we were able to divide by 2 a second time, 2 is also going to be the second number of our answer.Also, 17 is a prime number, so we can't break the number down any farther. That means 17 will be the third and final number in our answer.So according to the work we just did...2 x 2 x 17 = 68or to put it in simpler form..22 &Atilde;&mdash; 17 = 68
