# Thread: Looking for some help

1. ## Looking for some help

Hello guys. My task is to find the first n natural numbers that have more divisors than any other natural number before them for a given n. So basicly if n=5, then the program have to print 1,2,4,6,12. I made it work but now my problem is that my program works only to n=28,29 because the numbers seems to get quite large. For some reason i cannot make my k bigger than 99999 because then something breaks and i cannot fix it. Is there a way to make this work for any given n, or at least for more than 29.

Code:
```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int FindDevisors(int n)
{
int i,j=0;
for (i=1;i<=n;i++)
{
if (n%i==0)
{
j++;

}
}

return j;
}

int main()
{
int n,i,j,k,br=0,brc;

printf("Enter n ");
scanf("%d", &n);

k=99999;
int numbers[k];
//int *current;
//current = (int*)malloc(n * sizeof(int));
int current[k];

for(i=0,j=0;i<=k,j<=n;i++)
{
current[i]=FindDevisors(i);

if(br<current[i])
{
for(brc=0;brc<i;brc++)
{
numbers[j]=i;
}
br=current[i];
j++;

}
//printf("Devisors of %d are : %d\n",i,current[i]);
}

for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
}

return 0;
}```

2. Code:
```    k=99999;
int numbers[k];
//int *current;
//current = (int*)malloc(n * sizeof(int));
int current[k];```
The stack isn't an infinite amount of space you can create monster sized arrays in.

If you want larger arrays, you have to use malloc (which you've started to do).

3. Yeah i figured out i probably have to use dynamic memory, but i cannot manage to do it.With what i have tried it just doesnt work

4. There may be another alternative: declare the array with static storage duration. This could mean using the static keyword, or it could mean moving the array declaration to file scope. You then probably don't want it to be a variable length array, so #define K appropriately instead of declaring k as a variable in main.

5. > for(i=0,j=0;i<=k,j<=n;i++)
Well one reason would be that you're accessing outside the bounds of the array.
You should have <, not <= in your loops.

6. Code:
```
static int numbers[2147483647];
static int current[2147483647];```
I guess this worked as a solution for now, couldnt figure out how to do it with malloc but thanks anyways

7. > I guess this worked as a solution for now,
If you call using 16GB of memory 'a solution'.

Code:
```#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int FindDevisors(int n)
{
int i,j=0;
for (i=1;i<=n;i++)
{
if (n%i==0)
{
j++;

}
}

return j;
}

int main()
{
int n,i,j,k,br=0,brc;

printf("Enter n ");
scanf("%d", &n);

k=999999;
//int numbers[k];
int *numbers = malloc(k * sizeof(int));
int *current = (int*)malloc(k * sizeof(int));
// int current[k];

for(i=0,j=0;i<k,j<n;i++)
{
current[i]=FindDevisors(i);

if(br<current[i])
{
for(brc=0;brc<i;brc++)
{
numbers[j]=i;
}
br=current[i];
j++;

}
//printf("Devisors of %d are : %d\n",i,current[i]);
}

for(i=0;i<n;i++)
{
}

free(numbers);
free(current);
return 0;
}

\$ ./a.out
Enter n 30

It starts to seriously slow down after about 20.
