Solution

#### Note:

This solution was written on an old version of Exercism. The tests below might not correspond to the solution code, and the exercise may have changed since this code 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".

## Elm Installation

Refer to the Exercism help page for Elm installation and learning resources.

## Writing the Code

The first time you start an exercise, you'll need to ensure you have the appropriate dependencies installed.

``````\$ elm-package install --yes
``````

Execute the tests with:

``````\$ elm-test
``````

Automatically run tests again when you save changes:

``````\$ elm-test --watch
``````

As you work your way through the test suite, be sure to remove the `skip <|` calls from each test until you get them all passing!
