# Analysis page (Most common Number of prime factors)

All the analysis made from the outputs of participants will be shown here.

• Graph of Prime factor distribution from $0$ to $10^6$: • Graph of Number of prime factors occurrence percentage (till $10^6$): • Graph of Prime factor distribution from $0$ to $10^8$: Note :

• If you have another idea (rather than line graph) of representing the data then please share!

• Thanks to Páll Márton to submit answer till $10^8$. Note by Zakir Husain

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

@Zakir Husain I think Pie chart will be better as it will help visualise more clearly.

Sure!

It seems that till $10^6$ numbers with number of prime factors - $2,3,4$ are most common. Also highly composite number are more rare than primes

Reminds me of $\dfrac{1}{(x-k)^n}$...

What? I didn't understood, what you meant?

x=number of prime factors, k & n are unknown constants, the output of the function is the number of number that have x prime factors.

Except for $x < 2$ I guess?

Looking great @Zakir Husain ! Could you share the actual numbers as well?
