$26 = 2 \times 13$

#### Explanation:

First, we can see that the last digit of $26$ is even, and thus $26$ is divisible by $2$. If we divide by $2$, we find $\frac{26}{2} = 13$. As $13$ is a prime number, there are no further prime factors of $26$, and so the prime factorization of $26$ is $2 \times 13$.
