# Radical of n, product of distinct prime factors of n

The radical (squarefree kernel, largest squarefree divisor) of an integer is the product of distinct prime factors of that integer. For example, the radical of 12 is 6, since 2 × 3 = 6. If an integer is squarefree, it is equal to its radical (see A007947).

Multiplicative with ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle a(p^{\alpha })\,=\,p,\,}$ thus with ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle n\,=\,\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p_{i}^{\alpha _{i}},\,}$ we have

${\displaystyle {\rm {rad}}(n)=\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p_{i}.\,}$

## n divided by radical of n

Multiplicative with ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle a(p^{\alpha })\,=\,p^{\alpha -1},\,}$ thus with ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle n\,=\,\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p_{i}^{\alpha _{i}},\,}$ we have

${\displaystyle {\frac {n}{{\rm {rad}}(n)}}=\prod _{i=1}^{\omega (n)}p_{i}^{\alpha _{i}-1}.\,}$
