Hey I've just done problem 1a and I prolly need someone to check it for me since i'm totally new to computer programming...
Thanks
Toan
PS: 1st program so far :D
Odd = () # Creating a set of all odd integer
for k in range(3,10000):
if k % 2 != 0:
Odd = Odd + (k,)
Prime = ()
for x in Odd:
for i in Odd:
if i < x:
if x % i == 0:
break
else:
Prime = Prime + (x,)
break
print "Enter a number: "
x = int(raw_input())
print 'The ', x, 'th prime number is: ', Prime[x2]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That probably works, though it assumes some knowledge about the results. Specifically that the 1000th prime will occur before 10000. It also doesn't end when it finds the 1000th prime. You should be able to verify for yourself that it works correctly, as when it's done it should tell you the 1000th prime.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hm...i got the right result so i guess it works but its true it doesnt stop when it finds the 1000th prime... im working on it though i dont know how yet thanks a lot! :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why not change your outermost loop to a while loop rather than a for loop and loop until you've found a certain number of primes (1000).
