I'm working on problem set 1, problem 1. I think I'm close, but it's giving me a prime number that is too low to be the 1000th. Here is my code, could anyone tell me where I went wrong?
primecounter = 1 # how many primes found, start 1 to include 2
primetester = int(3) # test if prime
while primecounter < 1000:
for x in range (2, primetester):
if primetester%x == 0:
primetester = primetester + 2 #not a prime
else: primecounter = primecounter + 1 #is a prime
primetester = primetester + 2
primetester = primetester - 2 #undo the last addition
print primete
