Given a string. The task is to find the count of characters whose number of occurrences is prime. 

Examples

Input : str = "geeksforgeeks"
Output : 3
Count of occurrences of characters are:
g -> 2
e -> 4
k -> 2
s -> 2
f -> 1
o -> 1
r -> 1
So, g, k and s occurs prime number of times i.e. 2

Input : str = "aabbcc"
Output : 3

Start traversing the string and count the occurrences of each character using a map in C++ and check whether an occurrence is prime or not. If prime then increment the count otherwise not.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 

C++




// C++ program to find count of numbers
// with prime frequencies
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check if a
// number is prime
bool check_prime(int n)
{
    // Corner cases
    if (n <= 1)
        return false;
    if (n <= 3)
        return true;
 
    // This is checked so that we can skip
    // middle five numbers in below loop
    if (n % 2 == 0 || n % 3 == 0)
        return false;
 
    for (int i = 5; i * i <= n; i = i + 6)
        if (n % i == 0 || n % (i + 2) == 0)
            return false;
 
    return true;
}
 
// Function to find count of numbers
// with prime frequencies
int countPrimeFrequent(string s)
{
    int count = 0;
 
    // create a map to store
    // frequency of each character
    unordered_map<char, int> mp;
 
    // Store frequency of each character
    // in the map
    for (int i = 0; i < s.length(); i++)
        mp[s[i]]++;
 
    // now iterate the map and characters
    // with prime occurrences
    for (auto it = mp.begin(); it != mp.end(); it++) {
 
        // if prime then increment count
        if (check_prime(it->second))
            count++;
    }
 
    return count;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    string s = "geeksforgeeks";
 
    cout << countPrimeFrequent(s);
 
    return 0;
}
