Step 1: Divide 68 by 2 (the smallest prime number) to get 34.

68 / 2 = 34

Step 2: Since 34 is still an even number, divide it by 2 again to get 17.

34 / 2 = 17

Step 3: Now, 17 is a prime number itself and cannot be divided further except by 1 and 17. So, we stop here.

So, the prime factorization of 68 is 2 x 2 x 17 or 22 x 17.
