re: Daily Challenge #269 - Decompose n! VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Here is my simple solution with PHP:

function decomp($n) {
  $result = [];
  $index = 2;

  for($index=2; $index <= $n; $index++) {
    $number = $index;
    $numberIndex = 2;
    if (isPrime($number) === false) {
      while (isPrime($number) === false) {
        if ($number % $numberIndex === 0) {
          if (array_key_exists((string)$numberIndex, $result) === true) {
            $result[(string)$numberIndex] += 1;
          } else {
            $result[(string)$numberIndex] = 1;
          }

          $number = (int)($number / $numberIndex);
        } else {
          $numberIndex += 1;
        }
      }

      if (array_key_exists((string)$number, $result)) {
         $result[(string)$number] += 1;
      } else {
         $result[(string)$number] = 1;
      }
    }

    if (isPrime($index) === true) {
      if (array_key_exists((string)$index, $result)) {
        $result[(string)$index] += 1;
      } else {
        $result[(string)$index] = 1;
      }
    }
  }

  $answer = "";
  foreach($result as $key => $value) {
    if ($key === 1) {
      continue;
    }
    if($value === 1) {
      $answer .= $key . " * ";
      continue;
    }
    $answer .= $key . "^" . $value . " * ";
  }

  return substr($answer, 0, -3);
}

function isPrime($n) {
  $count = ceil(sqrt($n));
  for($index=2; $index<=$count; $index++) {
    if ($n % $index === 0) {
      return false;
    }
  }

  return true;
}
