# Product of unique prime factors of a number in Python Program

In this article, we will learn about the solution to the problem statement given below −

## Problem statement

Given a number n, we need to find the product of all of its unique prime factors available and return it.

### For Example

Input: num = 11 Output: Product is 11

### Explanation

Here, the input number is 11 having only 1 prime factor and it is 11. And hence their product is 11.

## Approach 1

Using a for loop from i = 2 to n+1 check whether i is a factor of n & then check if i is the prime number itself, if yes then store product in product variable and continue this process until till i becomes = n.

## Example

def productPrimeFactors(n): product = 1 for i in range(2, n+1): if (n % i == 0): isPrime = 1 for j in range(2, int(i/2 + 1)): if (i % j == 0): isPrime = 0 break if (isPrime): product = product * i return product # main n = 18 print (productPrimeFactors(n))

## Output

120

The scope of all the variables are shown in the image below −

## Approach 2

1) While n is divisible by 2(even), print 2 and divide n by 2.

2) After step 1, n must become odd. Now start a for loop from i = 3 till the square root of n. While i divides n, print i and divide n by i. After i fails to divide n, increment i by 2 and continue the process.

3) If n is a prime number and is greater than 2, then n will not become 1 by above two steps. Hence print n if it is greater than 2.

## Example

import math def productPrimeFactors(n): product = 1 # prime factor 2 if (n % 2 == 0): product *= 2 while (n%2 == 0): n = n/2 # n must be odd for i in range (3, int(math.sqrt(n)), 2): # While i divides n, print i and # divide n if (n % i == 0): product = product * i while (n%i == 0): n = n/i # n is a prime number greater than 2 if (n > 2): product = product * n return product # main() n = 8 print (int(productPrimeFactors(n)))

## Output

2
