Solution

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 Installing Elm page for information about installing elm.

## Writing the Code

The first time you start an exercise, you'll need to ensure you have the appropriate dependencies installed. Thankfully, Elm makes that easy for you and will install dependencies when you try to run tests or build the code.

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!
