# JavaScript: Compute the factors of a positive integer

## JavaScript Function: Exercise-13 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to compute the factors of a positive integer.

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

``````<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>Compute the factors of a positive integer</title>
<body>

</body>
</html>
```
```

JavaScript Code:

``````function factors(n)
{
var num_factors = [], i;

for (i = 1; i <= Math.floor(Math.sqrt(n)); i += 1)
if (n % i === 0)
{
num_factors.push(i);
if (n / i !== i)
num_factors.push(n / i);
}
num_factors.sort(function(x, y)
{
return x - y;});  // numeric sort
return num_factors;
}
console.log(factors(15));  // [1,3,5,15]
console.log(factors(16));  // [1,2,4,8,16]
console.log(factors(17));  // [1,17]
```
```

Sample Output:

```[1,3,5,15]
[1,2,4,8,16]
[1,17]
```

## JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Shorten an array using its length property

A great way of shortening an array is by redefining its length property.

```let array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9]
array.length = 4
// Result: [0, 1, 2, 3]
```

Important to know though is that this is a destructive way of changing the array. This means you lose all the other values that used to be in the array.
