Prime Logic




Take a look above, the green numbers indicate that each prime number has exactly 2 (two) divisors. 1 and itself. From this simple logic, we can easily code it . Take a look again in Snippet above

Notes: This example is just for those who are new to this
function prime($n){

      //all numbers that will be evaluated as prime       
     for($i=1;$i";
             }
      }
} 


prime(20);  //find the Prime for 1-20 range
