### re: Daily Challenge #7 - Factorial Decomposition VIEW POST

I’m learning Erlang.

I’m not really happy with my solution yet, I feel it could be simpler. I’d rather keep functions that do one thing, though, and avoid `decompose_factorial_into_factors_and_group(X, Y, Z, [])` or something. Hence I didn’t save on the single-argument versions, or combine unrelated functions.

``````-module( decomp ).
-export( [ is_prime/1, decomp/1, fact_decomp/1, print/1 ] ).

-include_lib("eunit/include/eunit.hrl").

is_prime( 1 ) ->
false;
is_prime( N ) when N > 0 ->
is_prime( N, 2, floor( math:sqrt( N ) ) ).

is_prime( _N, Start, End ) when Start > End ->
true;
is_prime( N, Start, _End ) when N rem Start == 0 ->
false;
is_prime( N, Start, End ) ->
is_prime( N, Start + 1, End ).

decomp( N ) when N > 1 ->
lists:reverse( decomp( N, 2, [] ) ).

decomp( N, Start, Factors ) when Start > N ->
Factors;
decomp( N, Start, Factors ) ->
case is_prime( Start ) and ( N rem Start == 0 ) of
true -> decomp( N div Start, 2, [ Start | Factors ] );
false -> decomp( N, Start + 1, Factors )
end.

group_factors( Factors ) ->
group_factors( Factors, #{} ).

group_factors( [], Map ) ->
Map;
group_factors( [ Head | Rest ], Map ) ->
Current = maps:get( Head, Map, 0 ),
Updated = maps:put( Head, Current + 1, Map ),
group_factors( Rest, Updated ).

fact_decomp( N ) ->
group_factors( lists:flatmap(
fun decomp/1,
lists:seq( 2, N )
) ).

format_factor( { Fact, Exp } ) ->
case Exp of
1 -> io_lib:format( "~p", [ Fact ] );
_ -> io_lib:format( "~p^~p", [ Fact, Exp ] )
end.

format_factors( Facts ) ->
string:join(
lists:map(
fun format_factor/1,
lists:sort( maps:to_list( Facts ) )
),
" * "
).

print( N ) ->
io:fwrite( "~s~n", [ format_factors( fact_decomp( N ) ) ] ).

Try with:

``````% erl
1> c(decomp).
{ok,decomp}
2> decomp:test().
All 3 tests passed.
ok
3> decomp:print(22).
2^19 * 3^9 * 5^4 * 7^3 * 11^2 * 13 * 17 * 19
ok

Too bad @stevemoon didn’t do this one, I would have liked to compare. :-)
