// TODO complete operations (multiplication and divison)

The number of elements must be prime, and elements are required to be unique. The following snippets will throw.

// numberOfElementsIsNotPrime

algebraCyclic(['length', 'of', 'this', 'is', 'not', 'prime'])

// elementsAreNotUnique

algebraCyclic([1, 2, 1])
