so iv just started the prime number challenge, please help, basically, im having trouble giving python a command, her is a simple version of the line while x%y == >0: this gives me syntax error, im trying to say that, if x/y leaves a remainder, then x=x-1, if not, a+1 and repeat where a is the number being tested.... if that makes any sense? lol

Hi if you want know the simplest way to solve the prime number .. here is the way. you dont need to check the whole number ,,,just start the for loop from two till you arrive to the half of the number that you are attempting to know if it is prime or not. here is the example of what i say ... for(int i=2;x/2;i++) if(x%i==0) it is not prime ; else it is prime.
you just need if x % y > 0 not ==
pmpn8ez is right, but didn't explain what is wrong with your statement. == and > are both comparison operations, so you're getting an error. Section 5.3 of the Python documentation can expand on this if you're interested. Hope this helps!
