Checking semiprime numbers - JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in a number and the function establishes if the provided number is a semiprime or not.

Semiprime

A semiprime number is that number which is a special type of composite number that is a product of two prime numbers. For example: 6, 15, 10, 77 are all semiprime. The square of a prime number is also semiprime, like 4, 9, 25 etc.

Example

Following is the code to check semi-prime numbers −

const num = 141;
const checkSemiprime = num => {
   let cnt = 0;
   for (let i = 2; cnt < 2 && i * i <= num; ++i){
      while (num % i == 0){
         num /= i, ++cnt;
      }
   }
   if (num > 1){
      ++cnt;
   }
   // Return '1' if count is equal to '2' else
   // return '0'
   return cnt === 2;
}
console.log(checkSemiprime(num));

Output

Following is the output in the console −
