prime factorisation of 2057

You asked:

Find the prime factorization of the integer: \(\displaystyle 2057\)

MathBot Answer:

The prime factorization of \(2057\) is \(11^2 \cdot 17\).

The prime factorization of an integer is the decomposition of that integer into the product of powers of prime numbers. Begin by listing the first ten primes: $2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29$.

Divide the integer by the smallest divisible prime. Then divide the result by its smallest divisible prime. Continue until the result is prime, and multiply the primes together to get the prime factorization.

$$\begin{aligned}11&\underline{\big | 2057}\\11&\underline{\big | 187}\\& \: \: 17\end{aligned}$$

$2057 = 11 \cdot 11 \cdot 17 = 11^2 \cdot 17$
