Given a number N  . The task is to find all such numbers less than N and are a product of exactly two distinct prime numbers. 
For Example, 33 is the product of two distinct primes i.e 11 * 3, whereas numbers like 60 which has three distinct prime factors i.e 2 * 2 * 3 * 5.
Note: These numbers cannot be a perfect square.
Examples: 
 

Input : N = 30 
Output : 6, 10, 14, 15, 21, 22, 26
Input : N = 50 
Output : 6, 10, 14, 15, 21, 22, 26, 33, 34, 35, 38, 39, 46 
 

 

Algorithm
 

  1. Traverse till N and check whether each number has exactly two prime factors or not.
  2. Now to avoid the situation like 49 having 7 * 7 product of two prime numbers, check whether the number is a perfect square or not to ensure that it has two distinct prime.
  3. If Step 1 and Step 2 satisfies then add the number in the vector list.
  4. Traverse the vector and print all the elements in it.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 



C++




// C++ program to find numbers that are product
// of exactly two distinct prime numbers
 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check whether a number
// is a PerfectSquare or not
bool isPerfectSquare(long double x)
{
 
    long double sr = sqrt(x);
 
    return ((sr - floor(sr)) == 0);
}
 
// Function to check if a number is a
// product of exactly two distinct primes
bool isProduct(int num)
{
    int cnt = 0;
 
    for (int i = 2; cnt < 2 && i * i <= num; ++i) {
        while (num % i == 0) {
            num /= i;
            ++cnt;
        }
    }
 
    if (num > 1)
        ++cnt;
 
    return cnt == 2;
}
 
// Function to find numbers that are product
// of exactly two distinct prime numbers.
void findNumbers(int N)
{
    // Vector to store such numbers
    vector<int> vec;
 
    for (int i = 1; i <= N; i++) {
        if (isProduct(i) && !isPerfectSquare(i)) {
 
            // insert in the vector
            vec.push_back(i);
        }
    }
 
    // Print all numers till n from the vector
    for (int i = 0; i < vec.size(); i++) {
        cout << vec[i] << " ";
    }
}
 
// Driver function
int main()
{
    int N = 30;
 
    findNumbers(N);
 
    return 0;
}

{
    int cnt = 0;
 
    for (int i = 2; cnt < 2 && i * i <= num; ++i) {
        while (num % i == 0) {
            num /= i;
            ++cnt;
        }
    }

            // insert in the vector
            vec.add(i);
        }
    }
 
    // Print all numers till n from the vector
    Iterator<Integer> itr = vec.iterator(); 
            while(itr.hasNext()){ 
                 System.out.print(itr.next()+" ");
