HP 15C: Prime Factorization
This program does exactly this: factors an integer. Fix 0 mode is activated during
execution. Each factor is displayed by
pressing [R/S]. The calculator is
returned to Fix 4 mode when the program is completed. If the integer is a prime number, the program
just returns the integer entered.

Example: 150. Factors:

Very useful factorization program for HP 15C I try it on my Samsung S7 Edge with HP 15C App.
ReplyDeleteFactorize 111,111,189 = 3*7*41*129,049 when press R/S for the last factorization it took about 7 second to get the last answer very amazing!!! consider the CPU in this smartphone. I try the same with HP Prime APP on computer it gave answer instantly using ifactor(111,111,189)
This also takes about 5 seconds for 1,177,112
Thank You for your program and keep the good work!!!
Update
DeleteI try Free HP PRIME APP On the S7 EDGE and the speed is lighting fast only HP 15C gave answer slower maybe because of the code build for it classic computation style.
HP 15C App on S7 Edge with ifactor(8,771,155) = 5*1,754,231 takes 1 minute and 12 second to compute!!!
DeleteI would like to know how long it take to compute on a real physical HP 15C LE since I don't have one.
