hi
can any one help with Mersenne Prime numbers calculator.
A prime number is defined as being a Mersenne Prime if it is of the form 2^n – 1,
where n is any integer greater than 1
display all the Mersenne primes from 2 through 1,000,000. Your results should be as presented below, under testing.

2 3
3 7
5 31
7 127
13 8191

please provide me with some examples

Here is the your solution :

``````#include <iostream.h>
#include <math.h>

//using namespace std;

int isprime(unsigned long n)
{
for(unsigned long i=2;i<n/2;i++)
{
if(n%i==0)
return 0;
}
return 1;

}

int main()
{
for(unsigned long i=2;i<1000;i++)
{

if (isprime(pow(2,i)-1))
cout<<endl<<i<<'\t'<<pow(2,i)-1;

}

return 0;
} //end main``````

that didn't work plz help the assignment due today.

See, first of all we, in this community are there to help you not because you have paid us or we are servents or something.
You cant just say "it is not working". You need to specify what is the errors shown by the compiler or what is the undesired in the output.

Here on my machine i am having exactly the output you requested. But if you are not getting it, then you must tell us what is the problem.

Again I am giving you the program:

``````#include <iostream.h>
#include <math.h>

//using namespace std;

int isprime(unsigned long n)
{
for(unsigned long i=2;i<n/2;i++)
{
if(n%i==0)
return 0;
}
return 1;

}

int main()
{
for(unsigned long i=2;i<1000;i++)
{

if (isprime(pow(2,i)-1))
cout<<endl<<i<<'\t'<<pow(2,i)-1;

}

return 0;
} //end main`````` See, first of all we, in this community are there to help you not because you have paid us or we are servents or something.

That's wrong.:D

i am really sorry.
maybe it is working in other compiler but i'm using visual studio. and the message is very long
the instructor advised us to use prototypes

bool isPrime (long n);
// Returns true if n is a prime, else false

long power2 (long n);
// Returns 2 raised to the power of n.
// Remember you need to use integer arithmetic throughout…
// so you cannot use the built-in C++ pow() function.

i really appreciate your help.

TRY THIS OUT

#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>

int isPrime(unsigned long);
unsigned long power2( long);

void main()
{ clrscr();
for(int i=2;i<20;i++)
{
unsigned long val=power2(i) -1;

if (isPrime(val)==1)
{
cout<<i<<'\t'<<val<<'\n';

}

}

} //end main

int isPrime(unsigned long n)
{
for(unsigned long i=2;i<n/2;i++)
{
if(n%i==0)
return 0;
}
return 1;

}

unsigned long power2(long n)
{
unsigned long r=1;
for(int i=0;i<n;i++)
r*=2;

return r;

}

Siddhant3s, please stop giving people code. Read the Announcement.

The purpose of the forum is the help people learn, not get us banned from schools.

ok.
Actually I too was frustated as dese ppl dont want to work. They just are trying to exploit the service.
I will remember this.
Thankx

ops, you misunderstood me. i almost finished my program. but the problem is number 11 is counted as prime number and the example given doesn't include 11.
i didn't even try to just copy the code that you gave me.
