I have been thinking about the primes problem in problem set 1 for a day now and this is all I have.
for x in range(2,check):
print(x,"Not prime, moving on")
Kinda interesting but definitely not where I need to be to solve the problem.
And suggestions on where to go next?

I guess i should have comments in there so people can actually understand whats going on... but i dont.
OK where to start, i think your jumping ahead with your functions, problem set 1 should not use the for statement, as it needs to be paired with the return statement
now your going to need three conditions (that I can think of)
if something is prime (divisible only by 1 and itself)
if something is obviously not prime (divisible by something other then one and itself)
it its inconclusive (your test comes up with a remainder)
keeping in mind you can create two parts for each test
if x == y and y>z
report back when you have something a little bit more on track or if you got lost with my explanation
I suppose I should catch up on the readings before I do this problem set. I didn't even know that the for command wasn't introduced. I was probably relying on examples I had looked at for help.
