You are given an integer array nums, and you can perform the following operation any number of times on nums:

• Swap the positions of two elements nums[i] and nums[j] if gcd(nums[i], nums[j]) > 1 where gcd(nums[i], nums[j]) is the greatest common divisor of nums[i] and nums[j].

Return true if it is possible to sort nums in non-decreasing order using the above swap method, or false otherwise.

Example 1:

Input: nums = [7,21,3]
Output: true
Explanation: We can sort [7,21,3] by performing the following operations:
- Swap 7 and 21 because gcd(7,21) = 7. nums = [21,7,3]
- Swap 21 and 3 because gcd(21,3) = 3. nums = [3,7,21]


Example 2:

Input: nums = [5,2,6,2]
Output: false
Explanation: It is impossible to sort the array because 5 cannot be swapped with any other element.


Example 3:

Input: nums = [10,5,9,3,15]
Output: true
We can sort [10,5,9,3,15] by performing the following operations:
- Swap 10 and 15 because gcd(10,15) = 5. nums = [15,5,9,3,10]
- Swap 15 and 3 because gcd(15,3) = 3. nums = [3,5,9,15,10]
- Swap 10 and 15 because gcd(10,15) = 5. nums = [3,5,9,10,15]


Constraints:

• 1 <= nums.length <= 3 * 104
• 2 <= nums[i] <= 105

## Solution: Union-Find

Let nums[j]’s target position be i. In order to put nums[j] to pos i by swapping. nums[i] and nums[j] must be in the same connected component. There is an edge between two numbers if they have gcd > 1.

We union two numbers if their have gcd > 1. However, it will be TLE if we do all pairs . Thus, for each number, we union it with its divisors instead.

Time complexity: O(n2) TLE -> O(sum(sqrt(nums[i]))) <= O(n*sqrt(m))
Space complexity: O(n)
