Check if LCM of array elements is divisible by a prime number or not
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2021

Given an array and a number k, the task is to find if LCM of the array is divisible by k or not.
Examples : 
 

Input : int[] a = {10, 20, 15, 25}
              k = 3
Output : true

Input : int[] a = {24, 21, 45, 57, 36};
              k = 23;
Output : false

 

One simple solution is to first find LCM of array elements, then check if LCM is divisible by k or not.
Here, without calculating the LCM of the number we can find that LCM of the an array of number is divisible by a prime number k or not. If any number of the array is divisible by prime number k, then the LCM of the number is also divisible by prime number k.
 

C++




// C++ program to find LCM of
// array of number is divisible
// by a prime number k or not
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check any number of
// array is divisible by k or not
bool func(int a[], int k, int n)
{
    // If any array element is divisible
    // by k, then LCM of whole array
    // should also be divisible.
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        if (a[i] % k == 0)
        return true;
    return false;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int a[] = {14, 27, 38, 76, 84};
    int k = 19;
    bool res = func(a, k, 5);
    if(res)
    cout<<"true";
    else
    cout<<"false";
    return 0;
