Given two positive integers N and M., The task is to find the smallest divisor D of N such that gcd(D, M) > 1. If there are no such divisors, then print -1.
Input: N = 8, M = 10
Input: N = 8, M = 1
A naive approach is to iterate for every factor and calculate the gcd of the factor and M. If it exceeds M, then we have the answer.
Time Complexity: O(N * log max(N, M))
An efficient approach is to iterate till sqrt(n) and check for gcd(i, m). If gcd(i, m) > 1, then we print and break it, else we check for gcd(n/i, m) and store the minimal of them.
Below is the implementation of the above approach.
if (__gcd($m, $i) > 1)
// Check for gcd > 1
else if (__gcd($sec, $m) > 1)
$mini = min($sec, $mini);
// If gcd is m itself
if ($mini == $m)
// Driver code
$n = 8; $m = 10;
