The simplest solution to this problem is to list all prime factors, sort, reverse and print the first value in the list.

The third Project Euler problem - Largest Prime Factor - is stated as follows. What is the largest prime factor of the number 600851475143?

```
let getPrimeFactors = (num) => {
let rec next = (num, i, res) =>
switch (num > 1, num mod i === 0) {
| (true, true) => next(num / i, 2, [i, ...res])
| (true, false) => next(num, i + 1, res)
| _ => res
};
next(num, 2, [])
};
getPrimeFactors(600851475143)
|> List.sort(compare)
|> List.rev
|> List.hd
|> print_int;
```
