# Maximum possible prime divisors that can exist in numbers having exactly N divisors

Given an integer **N** which denotes the number of divisors of any number, the task is to find the maximum prime divisors that are possible in number having N divisors.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 4Output:2

Input:N = 8Output:3

**Approach:** The idea is to find the prime factorization of the number N, then the sum of the powers of the prime divisors is the maximum possible prime divisors of a number can have with N divisors.

**For Example:**

Let the number of divisors of number be 4, Then the possible numbers can be 6, 10, 15,... Divisors of 6 = 1, 2, 3, 6 Total number of prime-divisors = 2 (2, 3) Prime Factorization of 4 = 2^{2}Sum of powers of prime factors = 2

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
