Supose you want to find the factor tree of 32. In this case, you show use the folowing steps:

 32     /  \    2   16       /  \      2   8         /  \        2    4           /  \          2    2 32 is not prime --> divide by 2  16 is not prime --> divide by 2  8 is not prime --> divide by 2   4 is not prime --> divide by 2   2 is prime --> stop

Note that these dividers (in this case all are equal to 2) are the prime factors. They are also called the leaves of the factor tree.
