An Algorithm That Determines Whether An Integer Number Given Is A Prime Number
13th Nov, 2020
A prime number is a natural number greater than one that has no positive divisor other than one and itself.
The following algorithm can be used to determine whether a given integer is a prime number
1 THE ALGORITHM
Step 1: Start
Step 2: Declare variables n, i, flag.
Step 3: Initialize variables
Step 4: Read n from user.
Step 5: Repeat the steps until i<(n/2)
5.1 If remainder of n÷i equals 0
Go to step 6
Step 6: If flag=0
Display n is not prime
Display n is prime
Step 7: Stop
2 CONVERT THE ALGORITHM INTON PYTHON CODE
#!/usr/bin/python num = input('Enter the number which you wish to determine it is prime: ') if num < 2: print "\nTh e Number", num, " is not a prime!" else: for div in range(2, (num/2)+1): if num%div==0: print "\nThe Num ber", num, " is not a prime!" break else: print "\nThe Number", num, " is a prime!" i9
