Find the total number of composite factor for a given number

  • Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

Given an integer N, the task is to find the total number of composite factors of N. Composite factors of a number are the factors which are not prime.
Examples: 
 

Input: N = 24 
Output:
1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 are the factors of 24. 
Out of which only 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24 are composites.
Input: N = 100 
Output:
 

 

Approach: 
 

  • Find all the factors of N and store it in a variable totalFactors
  • Find all the prime factors of N and store it in a variable primeFactors
  • Now, total composite factors will be totalFactors – primeFactors – 1 (1 is subtracted because 1 is neither prime nor composite).

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 



C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the count
// of prime factors of n
int composite_factors(int n)
{
    int count = 0;
    int i, j;
 
    // Initialise array with 0
    int a[n + 1] = { 0 };
    for (i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
        if (n % i == 0) {
 
            // Stored i value into an array
            a[i] = i;
        }
    }
 
    // Every non-zero value at a[i] denotes
    // that i is a factor of n
    for (i = 2; i <= n; i++) {
        j = 2;
        int p = 1;
 
        // Find if i is prime
        while (j < a[i]) {
            if (a[i] % j == 0) {
                p = 0;
                break;
            }
            j++;
        }
 
        // If i is a factor of n
        // and i is not prime
        if (p == 0 && a[i] != 0) {
            count++;
        }
    }
 
    return count;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 100;
 
    cout << composite_factors(n);
 
    return 0;
}

    {
        a[i]=0;
    }
    for (i = 1; i <= n; ++i)
    {
        if (n % i == 0)
        {
 
            // Stored i value into an array
            a[i] = i;
