Abstract: We prove the $\mathbb {Q}$-factoriality of a nodal hypersurface in $\mathbb {P}^{4}$ of degree $n$ with at most ${\frac {(n-1)^{2}}{4}}$ nodes and the $\mathbb {Q}$-factoriality of a double cover of $\mathbb {P}^{3}$ branched over a nodal surface of degree $2r$ with at most ${\frac {(2r-1)r}{3}}$ nodes.
