4116 2021-05-22
Step 1
Unique Factorization Theorem.
For every integer n>1, there exists a positive integer k and distinct prime numbers
$$p_{1},p_{2}, p_{3},....,p_{k}$$ and positive integers such that,
$$n=p_{1}^{e_{1}}p_{2}^{e_{2}}...p_{k}^{e_{k}}$$
Step 2
Perform prime factorization of the number.
4,116 can be divided by 2.
$$4116=2\times 2058$$
2058 can also be divided by 2.
$$4116 = 2\times 2058$$
$$=2\times 2\times 1029$$
$$=2^{2}\times 1029$$
1029 can be divided by 3.
$$4116=2^{2}\times 1029$$
$$=2^{2}\times 3\times 343$$
343 can be divided by 7.
$$4116=2^{2}\times 1029$$
$$=2^{2}\times 3\times 7\times 49$$
Again divide 49 by 7.
$$4116=2^{2}\times 3\times 7\times 49$$
$$=2^{2}\times 3\times 7\times 7\times 7$$
$$=2^{2}\times 3\times 7^{3}$$
Thus, the factorization of 4116 is $$2^{2}\times 3\times 7^{3}$$.
