Problem 12
The sequence of triangle numbers is generated by adding the natural numbers. So the 7th triangle number would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 28. The first ten terms would be:

1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, 55, …

Let us list the factors of the first seven triangle numbers:

1: 1
3: 1,3
6: 1,2,3,6
10: 1,2,5,10
15: 1,3,5,15
21: 1,3,7,21
28: 1,2,4,7,14,28

We can see that 28 is the first triangle number to have over five divisors.

What is the value of the first triangle number to have over five hundred divisors?

    return $b;
}

$maxDiv = 500;

$x = 1;

do {
    $x++;

    $t = getTriangle($x);
    $xa = new primefactor($t);

    $c = getArrayProduct(array_map('addOne', array_count_values($xa->factor)));
} while ($c < $maxDiv);

echo $t.PHP_EOL;
