Euler’s Totient function Φ(n) for an input n is count of numbers in {1, 2, 3, …, n} that are relatively prime to n, i.e., the numbers whose GCD (Greatest Common Divisor) with n is 1.

For example, Φ(4) = 2, Φ(3) = 2 and Φ(5) = 4. There are 2 numbers smaller or equal to 4 that are relatively prime to 4, 2 numbers smaller or equal to 3 that are relatively prime to 3. And 4 numbers smaller than or equal to 5 that are relatively prime to 5.

We have discussed different methods for computation of Φ(n) in previous post.

**How to compute Φ for all numbers smaller than or equal to n?**

Example:

Input: n = 5 Output: Totient of 1 is 1 Totient of 2 is 1 Totient of 3 is 2 Totient of 4 is 2 Totient of 5 is 4

A **Simple Solution **is to call Φ(i) for i = 1 to n.

An **Efficient Solution **is to use idea similar to Sieve of Eratosthenes to precompute all values. The method is based on below product formula.

The formula basically says that the value of Φ(n) is equal to n multiplied by product of (1 – 1/p) for all prime factors p of n. For example value of Φ(6) = 6 * (1-1/2) * (1 – 1/3) = 2.

Below is the complete algorithm:

1) Create an array phi[1..n] to store Φ values of all numbers from 1 to n. 2) Initialize all values such that phi[i] stores i. This initialization serves two purposes. a) To check if phi[i] is already evaluated or not. Note that the maximum possible phi value of a number i is i-1. b) To initialize phi[i] as i is a multiple in above product formula. 3) Run a loop for p = 2 to n a) If phi[p] is p, means p is not evaluated yet and p is a prime number (similar to Sieve), otherwise phi[p] must have been updated in step 3.b b) Traverse through all multiples of p and update all multiples of p by multiplying with (1-1/p). 4) Run a loop from i = 1 to n and print all Ph[i] values.

Below is the implementation of above algorithm.

**Output:**

The same solution can be used when we have large number queries for computing totient function.
