# FACTORIZ september challenge

 1 Can anyone explain in example-1, why 10 * 10 is written instead of 2 * 2 * 5 * 5. In first case,m=2 but in second case m=4. It is written in question that maximize m. asked 09 Sep '14, 15:45 44●2●2●4 accept rate: 0% 3★kcahdog 10.0k●28●54●129

 1 In a challenge problem you don't need to provide the most optimal solution. But solutions closer to the optimal value will receive more points. 100 = 1 * 100 (m=1) 100 = 10 * 10 (m=2) 100=10 * 2 * 5 (m=3) 100=2 * 2 * 5 * 5(m=4) All are correct solutions but the first one will receive least points and the last one gets maximum points. answered 11 Sep '14, 14:36 4★igcstar 15●1 accept rate: 0%
 0 that's just an example. Your task is to maximize m but all m integers when multiplied should give the actual number. you need to maximize m as much as you can within the given time limit. answered 09 Sep '14, 19:38 5★dextrous 158●2●2●10 accept rate: 0% I cant understand clearly..
