11086  Composite Prime
After long time i got a number theory problem with such an undefined statement like "N integers are positivenatural numbers". What does natural number means? Shall we try upto INFINITY?? Would you please tell me what would be the trouble if you had specified it with specific number. By the way i got this problem accepted and still confused about it's data range. Pathetic?!!?

The capital letter N is used in three different ways in this problem:
At least that is how I interpret it, and I got AC with it....
the set of natural numbers is normally denoted by N
First line of each test case contains one integer N.
Al three are different, and the last one is not the number of input values per case, but the input value itself.Constraints
 N ≤ 2^20
At least that is how I interpret it, and I got AC with it....

Re: need some explaination
I can give you an example of few first composite primes: 4, 6, 9, 10, 14, ...Rocky wrote:i cant understand the problem..

The numbers 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 are not composite, therefore they are not composite primes. The numbers 8 and 12 have nontrivial composite divisors (eg. 4), so they are not composite primes, too.
help again
thank's for reply]
actually i want the explain with the problem i/o...
can you help plsss with the problem i/o..

Thank you little joey. May be i am not good at guessing and solved this problem for data range 2^311. Your assumtion allowed me to get accepted in time 1.182 sec.little joey wrote:The capital letter N is used in three different ways in this problem:

Looking at the progammers who gets TLE in 100(3n+1), I feel how good good programmer I am and looking at the programmer get ACC in 10757(Interpreting SQL) i feel how bad I am.
You have to find the Composite Prime for M. M is the Subset of N. N is the set of natural number and N<=2^20.
So what it means:: Test case is N (Natural number and <=2^20). Then following N integers are positivenatural numbers (difference between positivenatural numbers and natural numbers is '0'). So all N input values are positive natural numbers means greater than 0 and less then or equal to N (N<=2^20).

confused
can someone explain what elements come in the set, I can't figure out the symbol between x and y , is it multiplication????
A number m is a member of M if m = x*y where x > 1 and y > 1. Both x and y are natural numbers.
If I will myself do hashing, then who will do coding !!!
