# Maximum count of common divisors of A and B such that all are co-primes to one another

Given two integers **A** and **B**. The task is to find the count of maximum elements from the common divisors of **A** and **B** such that all selected elements are co-prime to one another.**Examples:**

Input:A = 12, B = 18Output:3

Common divisors of A and B are 1, 2, 3 and 6.

Select 1, 2, and 3. All the pairs are co primes to

one another i.e. gcd(1, 2) = gcd(1, 3) = gcd(2, 3) = 1.Input:A = 1, B = 3Output:1

**Approach:** It can be observed that all the common factors of **A** and **B** must be a factor of their gcd. And, in order for the factors of this gcd to be co-prime to one another, one element of the pair must be either **1** or both the elements must be prime. So the answer will be 1 more than the count of prime divisors of **gcd(A, B)**. **Note** that **1** is added because **1** can also be a part of the chosen divisors as its gcd with the other pairs will always be **1**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
