Think about all the steps you need to perform and write it out here in normal english.
Not sure but here goes,
First, I need to create variable--- maybe… x
Then, I would assign value to them--- x = 1000
After that, create a “for loop”---
for candidate in range(0,x):
if candidate%2 != 0:
# makes sure candidates are prime
print “prime number”, candidate
#prints out the primes
Now, I know I need to figure out if a prime is the 100th prime, and that's where I'm having a hard time. Maybe create a counter that let's me know that I computed to the 1000th prime, but I think I attempted that when I created the variable x and assigned the 1000 integer to it, although it's most likely poor (and wrong) attempt at it.
Thanks dhatraditya for your help.
* opps-- the "for loop" should be
for candidate in range(1,x):
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
In this case, you will only find primes between 1 and 1000. So your answer will be 997, which is the highest prime between 1 and 1000. What you need to find is the thousandth prime number, not the prime numbers between 1 and 1000
so your counter needs to count the number of primes.
for x in range (0,1000)
check whether candidate is prime
don't increment x
