GIven two positive integers N and K. You have to find the Kth smallest factor of N. A factor of N is a positive integer which divides N. Output the Kth smallest factor of N if it exists otherwise print -1.


Example 1:

Input : N = 4 , K = 2
Output: 2
All factors of 4 are 1,2 and 4. Out of
these 2 is the 2nd smallest.

Example 2:

Input : N = 4 , K = 3
Output: 4
All factors of 4 are 1,2 and 4. Out of
these 4 is the 3rd smallest.


Your Task:
You don't need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function kThSmallestFactor() which takes 2 Integers N and K as input and returns the answer.


Expected Time Complexity: O(sqrt(N))
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)


1 <= N <= 106
1 <= K <= 106
