I think the explanation in the problem statement is a bit sparse. The numbers in the table do not represent prime numbers per se: they represent indices on prime numbers, whose ultimate product yields the value n.
The in-built function factors() was pretty helpful for this problem :)
I've been trying to submit an answer to this for over three hours. Other problems work fine, but this one keeps saying the server is offline.
I do not understand how this code passes the test.
How this is a solution
tabulate code is not working. I got the correct results but I am getting error --"Undefined function 'tabulate' for input arguments of type 'double"
Tabulate could probably be made to work here, but I recall that Cody does not allow toolbox functions, and tabulate lives in the stats toolbox. I'd guess the logic is that not everyone has all toolboxes, so a solution that uses some tool that others cannot use would not be fair to those others.
Definitely used a bit of a work around in this one. Sorry for that!
can't believe 'deblank' can be used in this way
