I am currently learning C++ (beginner level) and my assignment was to build a program that will display all the prime numbers between 1 and 100.

I wrote this algorithm:#include <iostream>

using namespace std;int main() {

int x, y, z;

for(x=1; x <= 100; x++) {

for(y=x-1; 0 < y; y--) {

z = x % y;

if(z!=0) cout << x << "\n";

}

}

return 0; }Which just displays all the numbers between 1 and 100 over and overâ€¦

My compiler is Visual Studio 2010.

What can I do to make it work?

Thanks!

hi, i tried to write the code but it was harder than i though (at least for me) because i am a beginner too. but i found the code on the net and i understood it so i hope you will like it. #include <iostream>

using namespace std;int NUMBER_ENTERD;

bool IS_PRIME = true;

int main()

{

while(true)

{

//intro

cout << "Enter a number: ";

cin >> NUMBER_ENTERD;

cout << "\n........................................ \n";

//prime checker

//first check if the number is greater than 1

if(NUMBER_ENTERD > 1)

{

for(int t=2; t<NUMBER_ENTERD; t++)

{

if(NUMBER_ENTERD % t == 0)

{

IS_PRIME = false;

}

}

}

else

{

IS_PRIME = false;

}

//print the result

if(IS_PRIME == true)

{

cout << "The number " << NUMBER_ENTERD << " is prime\n";

}

else

{

cout << "The number " << NUMBER_ENTERD << " is not prime\n";

}cout << "........................................ \n\n\n\n";

system("PAUSE");

cout << "\n\n\n";

}

return 0;

}

ooooh you know there is something wrong with this code, i will try to fix it help me if you can

hey i am sorry about that, but i found the wrong phrase is in the (If else loop )

else

{

IS_PRIME = false;

}

it should beelse

{

IS_PRIME = true;

}and there just the loop from 1 to 100 i am sure you can write it

The next thing you need to think about: Is 1 a prime number?

hi Razor2.3 I think you write but can you tell me why either its in math or in programing?? thank you
