A positive integer p greater than 1 is called prime if the only positive factors of p are 1 and p. How to find out if a number (N) is prime or not? ◦ Brute force approach:- Run a loop from 2-N-1 and check if any number divides N. ◦ √n approach:- If n is a composite integer, then n has a prime divisor less than or equal √n. So run the loop only till √n. Euclid’s theorem ◦ There is no largest prime number. ◦ Proof: ??

4
Generates all the primes from 2 to a given number n. Begins by assuming that all numbers are prime. Takes the first prime number and removes all of its multiples. Applies the same method to the next prime number

5
Consider finding primes in the range 2 to 20. We begin by writing all the numbers down 2 is the first prime. We now cross out all of its multiples, i.e. every second number The next non-crossed out number is 3.We now cross out all the multiples of We continue this till sqrt(n) i.e All the remaining numbers are prime and we can safely terminate the algorithm.

6
public boolean[] sieve(int n) { boolean[] prime=new boolean[n+1]; Arrays.fill(prime,true); prime[0]=false; prime[1]=false; int m=Math.sqrt(n); for (int i=2; i<=m; i++) if (prime[i]) for (int k=i*i; k<=n; k+=i) prime[k]=false; return prime; }

7
Rather than storing the information of only one number in an array element, we can store the information of up to 32 elements We use each bit of a 32 bit number to store the information whether the number is a prime or not

8
Let N = a^p * b^q * c^r.... ◦ Number of divisors = (p+1)*(q+1)*(r+1)... ◦ The highest power of a prime P contained in N! [N/P] + [N/P^2] + [N/P^3]....

9
Find the no of positive integral solutions for the equations (1/x) + (1/y) = 1/N! (read 1 by n factorial) Print a single integer which is the no of positive integral solutions modulo Input N Output Number of positive integral solutions for (x,y) modulo Constraints 1 <= N <= 10^6 Sample Input 1 Sample Output 1

10
The notation a | b means that a divides b. Let a and b be integers, not both zero. The largest integer d such that d | a and d | b is called the greatest common divisor of a and b. The greatest common divisor of a and b is denoted by gcd(a, b). Some Properties of GCD: ◦ gcd(a,b)=gcd(b,a) ◦ gcd(a,b)=gcd(-a,b) ◦ gcd(a,b)=gcd(|a|,b) ◦ gcd(a,0)=|a| ◦ gcd(a,ka)=|a|

11
public int GCD(int a, int b) { if (b==0) return a; return GCD(b, a%b); } Proof : ??

12
LCM(a,b) = (factors only in a) * (factors only in b) * (factors in both a and b) LCM(a,b) = (a / GCD(a,b)) * (b / GCD(a,b)) * GCD(a,b) => LCM(a,b) =(a * b)/GCD(a,b) The more general form (more than two variables) is... LCM(a,b,..)=GCD(a,b,..)* (a / GCD(a,b,..)) * (b / GCD(a,b,..)) *.. where GCD(a,b,c) = GCD(a,GCD(b,c)) = GCD(b,GCD(a,c)) = GCD(c,GCD(a,b))
