Hello here is my problem, I have n numbers, my multiplication combination can not involve more than 2 factors. How many products smaller than x will there be? Is there a function to determine that? Thank you. Last edited by skipjack; July 6th, 2017 at 12:45 PM.

you have n random numbers or n numbers in sequence?

exemple: n prime (11,13,17,19, 23) x not greater than 189 or x not greater than 289. I know the solution. I would like to know the path to the solution so i can do it for some other problems thank you Last edited by joswhale; July 7th, 2017 at 09:48 AM.

I greatly doubt there is a formula. You would have to start with an algorithm for finding the n  1 primes after a.
