Given three integers N, R and P where P is prime, the task is to find whether NCR is divisible by P or not.
Input: N = 6, R = 2, P = 7
6C2 = 15 which is not divisible by 7.
Input: N = 7, R = 2, P = 3
7C2 = 21 which is divisible by 3.
Approach: We know that NCR = N! / (R! * (N – R)!). Now using Legendre Formula, find the largest power of P which divides any N!, R! and (N -R)! say x1, x2 and x3 respectively.
In order for NCR to be divisible by P, the condition x1 > x2 + x3 must be satisfied.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
