first write a program to catch all the prime numbers in to an array in a given or a chosen range....

and compare the elements of prime numbers with the each element of the array u want...

if one of ur array element is equal to a element of prime number array,,that means it's a prime number....

e.g.

A[4]={1,5,3,4,17}; //range is 1 to 20

primArray[10]={2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19}

now compare array 'A' with the each element of 'primArray'.

if u find hard to write a program to catch prime numbers of a given range to an array email me....

Speak English please. And once you do that, you can show some effort.

hlp please

A prime number is a number that can only be evenly divided by itself and 1. Let number x equal a given element in the array. Now you can for loop from 2 to x-1 and use the modulus operator. If the resulting value is equal to 0 then it is certainly not a prime.

Good luck, LamaBot
