  • Last Updated : 12 May, 2021

Given an integer N, the task is to find the sum of exponents of prime factors of numbers 1 to N.

Input: N = 4
Output: 4
Explanation:
Numbers up to 4 are 1, 2, 3, 4 where
The exponent of 1 in the prime factorization of 1 is 0 (20), 
For 2 it is 1 (21), 
For 3 it is 1 (31), and 
For 4 it is 2 (22).
The sum of the exponent of prime factors of each number up to 4 is 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 = 4.

Input: N = 10
Output: 15
Explanation:
sum of the exponent of prime factors of each number up to 10 is 15.

Approach: The idea is to use the concept of Prime factors and their powers. Below are the steps:

  1. Iterate for each number from 2 to N and for each number do the following:
    1. find the power of prime factors for each number N.
    2. Find the summation of each power in the above steps
  2. Print the summation of all the powers of prime factors of N and print the sum.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to implement sieve of
// erastosthenes
void sieveOfEratosthenes(int N, int s[])
{
    // Create a boolean array and
    // initialize all entries as false
    vector<bool> prime(N + 1, false);
 
    // Initializing smallest
    // factor equal to 2
    // for all the even numbers
    for (int i = 2; i <= N; i += 2)
        s[i] = 2;
 
    // Iterate for odd numbers
    // less then equal to n
    for (int i = 3; i <= N; i += 2) {
 
        if (prime[i] == false) {
 
            // s(i) for a prime is
            // the number itself
            s[i] = i;
 
            // For all multiples of
            // current prime number
            for (int j = i;
                 j * i <= N; j += 2) {
 
                if (prime[i * j] == false) {
                    prime[i * j] = true;
 
                    // i is the smallest
                    // prime factor for
                    // number "i*j"
                    s[i * j] = i;
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
 
// Function to generate prime
// factors and its power
int generatePrimeFactors(int N)
{
    // s[i] is going to store
    // smallest prime factor of i
    int s[N + 1];
    int sum = 0;

    // Current prime factor of N
    int curr = s[N];
 
    // Power of current prime factor
    int cnt = 1;
 
    // Calculating prime factors
    // and their powers sum
    while (N > 1) {
 
        N /= s[N];
 
        if (curr == s[N]) {
 
            // Increment the count and
            // continue the process
            cnt++;
            continue;
        }
 
        // Add count to the sum
        sum = sum + cnt;
 
        curr = s[N];
 
        // Reinitialize count
        cnt = 1;
    }
 
    // Return the result
    return sum;
}
 
// Function to find the sum of all the
// power of prime factors of N

{
 
    int sum = 0;
 
    // Iterate for in [2, N]
