oops, you're right. I can't figure out what the pattern is. What does he mean by "canceling out"?

Update: Here's a solution:

use Math::BigInt (); use Math::Big::Factors (); my $a = Math::BigInt->new(1); $a *= $_ foreach @a; # 17820000 my $b = Math::BigInt->new(1); $b *= $_ foreach @b; # 19872000 my $gcd = Math::BigInt::bgcd($a, $b); # 108000 my $c = $a / $gcd; # 165 my $d = $b / $gcd; # 184 my @c = Math::Big::Factors::factors_wheel($c); # 3, 5, 11 my @d = Math::Big::Factors::factors_wheel($d); # 2, 2, 2, 23

Not quite the solution you asked for. Close enough?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
