For any product of two non-trivial primes, it is *always* possible to get the quotient of its factors b/a derived solely from the product of those factors, *without* first factoring the product (p).

    Alright! I admit it. I'm a f*cking shitposter! The shame! The shame I tell ya.

    It is true however, that you can get the quotient of two otherwise unknown variables x and y, that when multiplied together, give the quotient b/a.

    Part of the code I posted a while back.

    The variable _cd4 is known, and gives the quotient of c/d4, even though c and d4 themselves are unknown. And when multiplied together, c*d4 == b/a

    @dumbdev I dont know, but my delusions tell me it works? Does that count as imaginary? /jk

    Serious answer. I dont know. My math skills are rudimentary at best. Really. Im a rank amateur. But im happy to share the code for someone who knows more than me and wants to explore, extend, or try something new out.
