# Python | Count the array elements with factors less than or equal to the factors of given x

Given an array, the task is to count the elements of array whose factors are less than the given number **x**.

**Examples:**

Input:arr = [2, 12, 4, 6], x = 6

Output:2

factors of x = 6 is [1, 2, 3]

factors of arr[0] = 2 is [1]

factors of arr[1] = 12 is [1, 2, 3, 4]

factors of arr[2] = 4 is [1, 2]

factors of arr[3] = 6 is [1, 2, 3]so only arr[0] and arr[2] are the answer.

**Approach:**

Find out factors of all the elements and that of given **x**and after that compare all of them if factors of elements are less than that of factors of x, then increment the count.

**Below is the implementation of above problem – **

`from` `math ` `import` `ceil, sqrt ` ` ` `# function to count the factors of an array ` `def` `factorscount(x): ` ` ` `count ` `=` `0` ` ` `for` `i ` `in` `range` `(` `1` `,ceil(sqrt(x))): ` ` ` `if` `x` `%` `i` `=` `=` `i: ` ` ` `count` `+` `=` `1` ` ` `else` `: ` ` ` `count` `+` `=` `2` ` ` `return` `count ` ` ` `def` `Totalcount(arr, x): ` ` ` ` ` `# count of factors of given x ` ` ` `count_fac ` `=` `factorscount(x) ` ` ` ` ` `# store the count of each factors ` ` ` `arr_fac ` `=` `[factorscount(i) ` `for` `i ` `in` `arr] ` ` ` ` ` `ans ` `=` `0` ` ` ` ` `for` `i ` `in` `arr_fac: ` ` ` `# if factors count of element of array is ` ` ` `#small than that of given number ` ` ` `if` `i<count_fac: ` ` ` `ans` `+` `=` `1` ` ` ` ` `return` `ans ` ` ` ` ` `# Driver code ` ` ` `arr ` `=` `[` `2` `,` `12` `,` `4` `,` `6` `] ` `x ` `=` `6` `print` `(Totalcount(arr, x)) ` |
