To find the prime factorization of 196, you start by dividing it by the smallest prime number, which is 2. Then, you continue dividing by prime numbers until you reach 1.

Here's how it's done:

- ( 196 \div 2 = 98 )
- ( 98 \div 2 = 49 )

At this point, we can't divide 49 by 2, so we move to the next prime number, which is 3.

- ( 49 \div 7 = 7 )

Now, we've reached a prime number, so the prime factorization of 196 is ( 2 \times 2 \times 7 ), or expressed as ( 2^2 \times 7 ).
