Problem 357: Prime generating integers
(see projecteuler.net/problem=357)
Consider the divisors of 30: 1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30.
It can be seen that for every divisor d of 30, d+30/d is prime.
Find the sum of all positive integers n not exceeding 100 000 000
such that for every divisor d of n, d+n/d is prime.
My Algorithm
Each number n has at least two divisors: 1 and n itself.
Therefore for each candidate n the following must be prime numbers:
- d + n/d = 1 + n/1 = 1 + n and
- d + n/d = n + n/n = n + 1 → which is the same as before
e + n/e = n/d + n/(n/d) = n/d + d
I only have to check divisor d < e, hence d <= sqrt{n}.
In short, each candidate's successor must be a prime number.
For n=1 all conditions are fulfilled and it's a matching number.
For n>1 the successor can only be an odd prime number, therefore n>1 must be even.
And if n is even, then 2 is always a divisor:
that means that 2 + n/2 must be a prime number, too. However, 2 + n/2 can only be prime if n/2 is odd.
Now a stricter condition for n>1 is: n = 4k + 2 → n must be a multiple of 2, but not of 4.
Note
My prime sieve was copied from my toolbox.
Interactive test
You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho 30 | ./357
Output:
Note: the original problem's input 100000000
cannot be entered
because just copying results is a soft skill reserved for idiots.
(this interactive test is still under development, computations will be aborted after one second)
My code
… was written in C++11 and can be compiled with G++, Clang++, Visual C++. You can download it, too.
#include <iostream>
#include <vector>
// odd prime numbers are marked as "true" in a bitvector
std::vector<bool> sieve;
// return true, if x is a prime number
bool isPrime(unsigned int x)
{
// handle even numbers
if ((x & 1) == 0)
return x == 2;
// lookup for odd numbers
return sieve[x >> 1];
}
// find all prime numbers from 2 to size
void fillSieve(unsigned int size)
{
// store only odd numbers
const unsigned int half = size >> 1;
// allocate memory
sieve.resize(half, true);
// 1 is not a prime number
sieve[0] = false;
// process all relevant prime factors
for (unsigned int i = 1; 2 * i*i < half; i++)
// do we have a prime factor ?
if (sieve[i])
{
// mark all its multiples as false
unsigned int current = 3 * i + 1;
while (current < half)
{
sieve[current] = false;
current += 2 * i + 1;
}
}
}
int main()
{
unsigned int limit = 100000000;
std::cin >> limit;
fillSieve(limit + limit/2);
// 1 is the only odd number where i+1 is prime
unsigned long long sum = 1;
// scan only even numbers >= 2 of the form 2+4k
for (unsigned int n = 2; n <= limit; n += 4)
{
// quick check for divisor = 1
if (!isPrime(1 + n))
continue;
// n is always divisible by 2, perform a second quick check for divisor = 2
if (!isPrime(2 + n/2))
continue;
// check all potential divisors 3 ... sqrt(n)
bool valid = true;
for (unsigned int divisor = 3; divisor*divisor <= n; divisor++)
{
// is it a divisor ?
if (n % divisor != 0)
continue;
// d + n/d
if (!isPrime(divisor + n / divisor))
{
valid = false;
break;
}
// other divisor is n/d:
// n/d + n/(n/d)
// = n/d + d => same as above
}
// found another value
if (valid)
sum += n;
}
// display result
std::cout << sum << std::endl;
return 0;
