  2. Take 2. 2 x 86 = 172, which means we add these to our factor list.
    12...86172

  3. Now take 3... no. 172/3 isn't a whole number. So we skip 3.

  4. Next try 4. 4 x 43 = 172, so we add these to our list of factors.
    124...4386172

  5. Now try 5... nope! 172/5 isn't a whole number. So we skip 5.

  6. Try 6... no good. 172/6 isn't a whole number. So we skip 6.
