# Count numbers upto N which are both perfect square and perfect cube

Given a number N. The task is to count total numbers under N which are both perfect square and cube of some integers.

Examples:

```Input: N = 100
Output: 2
They are 1 and 64.

Input: N = 100000
Output: 6
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach: For a given positive number N to be a perfect square, it must satisfy P2 = N Similarly, Q3 = N for a perfect cube where P and Q are some positive integers.
N = P2 = Q3
Thus, if N is a 6th power, then this would certainly work. Say N = A6 which can be written as (A3)2 or (A2)3.
So, pick 6th power of every positive integers which are less than equal to N.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the above approach ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to return required count ` `int` `SquareCube(``long` `long` `int` `N) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``int` `cnt = 0, i = 1; ` ` `  `    ``while` `(``int``(``pow``(i, 6)) <= N) { ` `        ``++cnt; ` `        ``++i; ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``return` `cnt; ` `} ` ` `  `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``long` `long` `int` `N = 100000; ` ` `  `    ``// function call to print required answer ` `    ``cout << SquareCube(N); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Java

 `// Java implementation of the above approach  ` ` `  `public` `class` `GFG{ ` ` `  `    ``// Function to return required count  ` `    ``static` `int` `SquareCube(``long` `N)  ` `    ``{  ` `     `  `        ``int` `cnt = ``0``, i = ``1``;  ` `     `  `        ``while` `((``int``)(Math.pow(i, ``6``)) <= N) {  ` `            ``++cnt;  ` `            ``++i;  ` `        ``}  ` `     `  `        ``return` `cnt;  ` `    ``}  ` `     `  `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String []args) ` `    ``{  ` `        ``long` `N = ``100000``;  ` `     `  `        ``// function call to print required answer  ` `        ``System.out.println(SquareCube(N)) ; ` `    ``}  ` `    ``// This code is contributed by Ryuga ` `} `
