Well i thought that any task that require computational work had time complexity? And that time complexity describes the amount of work needed that is generally needed to solve a problem. Does not factoring primeproduct have time complexity? It was along time since i read about sorting algorithms or did any discrete math. And i thought the work of bruteforcing a primeproduct could be given a time complexity just like sorting problems. The maximum number of tries to divide primeproduct with x to find the factors must be SQRT primeproduct, but maybe this isn't at all time complexity for task it was such along time since i read about time complexity.
