How can I find the prime factors of an integer in JavaScript

0 votes

Using a for loop in javascript, I was attempting to determine the prime factors of a number, denoted as 'integer' below. 

I can't seem to get it to work, and I'm not sure if it's because of my JavaScript or my calculating logic.

//integer is the value for which we are finding prime factors
var integer = 13195;

var primeArray = [];

//find divisors starting with 2

for (i = 2; i < integer/2; i++) {
  if (integer % i == 0) {

    //check if divisor is prime
    for (var j = 2; j <= i / 2; j++) {
      if (i % j == 0) {
        isPrime = false;
      } else {
        isPrime = true;
      }
    }

    //if divisor is prime

    if (isPrime == true) {
      //divide integer by prime factor & factor store in array primeArray
      integer /= i
      primeArray.push(i);
    }
  }
}

for (var k = 0; k < primeArray.length; k++) {
  console.log(primeArray[k]);
}
