Chemistry - Van't Hoff Factor

How does the van't hoff factor relate to freezing points? If one van't hoff factor is bigger than another, is its freezing point lower or greater?

delta Tf = iKfm.

So increasing i will increase delta Tf

Van't Hoff factor is the concentration of particles in a solute, so, if it is bigger, the freezing point depression is greater, thus the fp is lower.
