# Prime numbers assignment

From WLCS

**Objective:**

- To become well-learned in the way of the while loop

**Resources:**

**Directions:**

- Prompt the user to enter a number,
**N** - Create a variable named
**isPrime**and set it to**True** - Use a loop that counts from 2 up through
**N/2**- If N is divisible by the loop counter, then set
**isPrime**to**False**and**break**out of the loop - In order to check for divisibility, you can get the remainder by using the modulus (%) operator. Example: 13 % 5 yields 3 because the remainder of 13 / 5 is 3
- Compare the remainder to 0 to see if it is evenly divided

- If N is divisible by the loop counter, then set
- After the loop, check if
**isPrime**is**True**,- print out that it is a prime number,
- else, print out that it is not a prime number

**Additional Challenges:**

- Prompt the user for A
- Print out the first A prime numbers
