Solution

#### Note:

This exercise has changed since this solution was written.

Convert a number to a string, the contents of which depend on the number's factors.

• If the number has 3 as a factor, output 'Pling'.
• If the number has 5 as a factor, output 'Plang'.
• If the number has 7 as a factor, output 'Plong'.
• If the number does not have 3, 5, or 7 as a factor, just pass the number's digits straight through.

## Examples

• 28's factors are 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28.
• In raindrop-speak, this would be a simple "Plong".
• 30's factors are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30.
• In raindrop-speak, this would be a "PlingPlang".
• 34 has four factors: 1, 2, 17, and 34.
• In raindrop-speak, this would be "34".

## Setup

Follow the setup instructions for Crystal here:

## Making the Test Suit Pass

Execute the tests with:

``````\$ crystal spec
``````

In each test suite all but the first test have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can unskip the next one by changing `pending` to `it`.
