Problem 42831. Integer complexity

Created by HH in Community

Given an array, n, of positive integers, return an array, c, of the same size, in which each element is the complexity of the corresponding element in n.

Integer complexity is defined in number theory as the least number of ones required to represent an integer using only addition, multiplication and parentheses.

Example 1:

n = 3

c = 3

Example 2:

n = [6 10 11;16 18 41]

c = [5 7 8;8 8 12]
