Given a number n, write a program to calculate number of ways in which number can be expressed as product of two different factors.
Input : 12 Output : 3 12 can be expressed as 1 * 12, 2 * 6 and 3*4. Input : 36 Output : 4 36 can be expressed as 1 * 36, 2 * 18, 3 * 12 and 4 * 9.
All factors of 12 are = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 We can observe that factors always exist in pair which is equal to number. Here (1, 12), (2, 6) and (3, 4) are such pairs.
As a number can expressed as product of two factors we only need to find number of factors of number upto square root of number. And we only need to find only different pairs so in case of perfect square we don’t include that factor.
