Python Program for Find minimum sum of factors of number

Given a number, find minimum sum of its factors.

Examples:

Input : 12
Output : 7
Explanation: 
Following are different ways to factorize 12 and
sum of factors in different ways.
12 = 12 * 1 = 12 + 1 = 13
12 = 2 * 6 = 2 + 6 = 8
12 = 3 * 4 = 3 + 4 = 7
12 = 2 * 2 * 3 = 2 + 2 + 3 = 7
Therefore minimum sum is 7

Input : 105
Output : 15

# Python program to find minimum
# sum of product of number
   
# To find minimum sum of
# product of number
def findMinSum(num):
    sum = 0
      
    # Find factors of number
    # and add to the sum
    i = 2
    while(i * i <= num):
        while(num % i == 0):
            sum += i
            num /= i
        i += 1
    sum += num
      
    # Return sum of numbers
    # having minimum product
    return sum
  
# Driver Code
num = 12
print findMinSum(num)
