Find the prime P using given four integers

  • Last Updated : 06 May, 2021
Geek Week

Given four integers X, Y, X2%P, Y2%P, where P is a prime number. The task is to find prime P. 
Note: Answer always exists.
Examples: 
 

Input : X = 3, XsqmodP = 0, Y = 5, YsqmodP = 1 
Output :
When x = 3, x2 = 9, and 9 modulo P is 0. So possible value of p is 3 
When x = 5, x2 = 25, and 25 modulo P is 1. So possible value of p is 3
Input : X = 4, XsqmodP = 1, Y = 5, YsqmodP = 0 
Output :
 

 

Approach : 
From above numbers we get,
 

X2 – XsqmodP = 0 mod P 
Y2 – YsqmodP = 0 mod P



Now find all the common prime factors from both the equation, and check if it satisfies the original equation, If it does (one of them will since answer always exists) then that’s the answer.
Below is the implementation of the above approach : 
 

C++




// CPP program to possible prime number
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check if a
// number is prime or not
bool Prime(int n)
{
    for (int j = 2; j <= sqrt(n); j++)
        if (n % j == 0)
            return false;
 
    return true;
}
 
 
// Function to find possible prime number
int find_prime(int x, int xsqmodp , int y, int ysqmodp)
{
     
    int n = x*x - xsqmodp;
    int n1 = y*y - ysqmodp;
     
    // Find a possible prime number
    for (int j = 2; j <= max(sqrt(n), sqrt(n1)); j++)
    {
        if (n % j == 0 && (x * x) % j == xsqmodp &&
                  n1 % j == 0 && (y * y) % j == ysqmodp)
            if (Prime(j))
                return j;
                 
        int j1 = n / j;
        if (n % j1 == 0 && (x * x) % j1 == xsqmodp
             && n1 % j1 == 0 && (y * y) % j1 == ysqmodp)
            if (Prime(j1))
                return j1;
         
        j1 = n1 / j;
        if (n % j1 == 0 && (x * x) % j1 == xsqmodp &&
                n1 % j1 == 0 && (y * y) % j1 == ysqmodp)
            if (Prime(j1))
                return j1;
    }
     
    // Last condition
    if (n == n1)
        return n;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int x = 3, xsqmodp = 0, y = 5, ysqmodp = 1;
     
    // Function call
    cout << find_prime(x, xsqmodp, y, ysqmodp);
 
    return 0;
}
