Prime Number  System print all the prime numbers ...
Guys , it's me again !
How to write a java program for following question :
" A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number which has exactly two distinct natural number divisors: 1 and itself. Alex have problem with Prime Number. He would like system to print all the prime number until the number he entered. "

Alex who? I thought it was Samantha...
Who's Alex? Anyway, again, this is not "CODERUS". Somebody, either you or Alex, has to show some effort, so what have you done so far? What ideas do you have? What have you tried?
Luck,
CJSLChris S.

guy this is what i got for prime numbers
Java Code:import java.util.Scanner; public class prime{ public static void main (String args[]){ int num,prime; Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in); System.out.print("enter the number="); num=input.nextInt(); num= System.out.print(num); } } }
i think the formula goes after num =
however , idont know what's the formula , could guide me ?
by the way , do i need to use Do,while command for this program ?

take a look at this code :
Java Code:[CODE]import java.util.Scanner; public class prime{ public static void main (String args[]){ int num; Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in); System.out.print("enter the number="); num=input.nextInt(); for ( int i = 2; i <= num; i++ ) if ( num % i == 0 ) { System.out.print(); } } }
but the answer is not prime numbers till entered number.
why should i do with it ?

If you went to a lumberjack forum to learn how to cut down trees, would you expect the people there to volunteer to cutdown your trees for you FOR FREE just because you're to lazy and stupid to workout how to use an axe, or saw, or a chainsaw, or a bulldozer?
Show some effort on your own behalf or take a hike buster.
Have a go yourself... We'll help, but nobody is going to do your homework for you.
Cheers. Keith.

You are on the right track, your for loop needs to change as such.
Java Code:for ( int i = 1; i <= num; i++ ){ if ( num % i == 0 ) System.out.println(i); }

woops, there is a problem with the math in the if statement.

If you aren't sure that 2, 4 and 6 aren't prime (and don't know how to find out for yourself) do you really think you're ready to try your hand at computer programming... I mean programming get's pretty complicated, even to do "basic stuff"... It's not a persute oft recommended to folks who are yet to master grade three math.

u must use twise the for loop...once to check all number from 2 to num, and the second time u do the dividing...but this requires the labeled continue..i dont know if u have alredy used continue before

Normally I wouldn't do this but I'm bored.
Java Code:public static void main (String args[]){ int num; boolean isPrime = true; Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in); System.out.print("enter the number="); num=input.nextInt(); for ( int i = 1; i <= num; i++ ){ isPrime = true; for(int y=2; y <= i/2; y++) { if ((i%y == 0)) isPrime = false; } if (isPrime) System.out.println(i); } }

Prime numbers
... i think 4 ,6 and 12 aren't prime . am i right ?
huh, yes, you are right. If your going to program, you have to completely understand the requirements (a suggestion for future projects).
Useful links...

Java Code:for ( int i = 1; i <= num; i++ ){ if ( num % i == 0 ) System.out.println(i); }
Java Code:for( int i = 1; i <= num; i++ ){ for(int k = 1; k <= num; k++){ if ( i % k == 0 ) { j++; if(j>2){ break; } } } if(j==2){ System.out.println(i); } j=0; }
'num%4 ' bcs if a num is divided by 2 it should also divisiable by 4 ,if a num is divided by 3 it should also divisiable by 6 etc..]Last edited by sandeepsai39; 04242009 at 08:14 AM.

OP: begin with an algorithm, not with code. Google about for one: although I doubt you need go further than Wikipedia.
Then once you have a strategy which you can understand  and therefore be able to explain to others  you can ask serious questions about how to implement it.
Or, less seriously, try this
Java Code:import java.math.BigInteger; import java.util.Scanner; public class Prime { public static void main (String args[]){ Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in); System.out.print("enter the number="); int num=input.nextInt(); for(int i = 0; i < num; i++) { if(new BigInteger("" + i).isProbablePrime(100)) { System.out.println(i); } } } }
