yes, im still stuck on that primes problem. my code is this: http://dpaste.com/532787/ my bug begins after the 24th prime. for the 25th i get 95 and not 97. since my tuple contains all the #'s from 2 up to but not including the value being tested, and 95%5==0 is true, it should add 2 to the number again, but it doesn't. when i try running the for loop 999 time it gives me the 800 something th prime. i just can't seem to figure our the bug. my (tiny) brain has been struggling with this problem for a tremendous amount of time. help.....

    I'm not seeing a tuple in your code. You have two for statements that are iterating through numbers and changing the value of prime, but the values aren't being added to a tuple.

    since the upper value of my range is changing, it should be testing all the values from 2 up to but not including the current (prime) value right. if it were not changing the upper value then i would get values such as 9 and 21 in my answers, but this is not the case
