Prime Anagrams

October 15, 2019

There are many algorithms for recognizing anagrams. Here is an unusual one:

Assign each character to a prime number, then map a string to the corresponding primes, and compute their product. Two strings are anagrams only if they share a product.

Your task is to use prime numbers to recognize anagrams. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
