So I am on ps1pr2. Through reading here, I figured out the first problem and here is my code. I tweaked it a little to fit the second problem and let the user input to what prime is being calculated: http://codepad.org/ALTEQij0 My next question is what should my next step be? I am at a bit of a loss as how to calculate the sums of the logs. Should I assign a new variable (sumoflog), and then just keep adding to that as I work through the prime numbers?

Sorry, I used "answer" as a variable in my additional code that lets the user put in a number. Makes is a little confusing. thats better: http://codepad.org/o98NeR9d

Yes. Start a new variable at the beginning of your program that will keep track of the sum of the logs of the prime numbers. Since you assume that 3 is already a prime number, you should set the variable initially as: sumoflog=log(3) as you cycle through the primes sumoflog should increase sumoflog=log(3)+log(5)+log(7)... you will use a statement such as sumoflog+=log(n) where n is a number that you have determined is a prime

Thanks for the heads up malpaso. As I was writing my question it began to make more sense, but your additional explanation will really help me out.

I misread your program. You assume that 2 is a prime and test for 3. So initially you would set: sumoflog=log(2)

You could improve the readability by changing the lines: if divisor<(number) if divisor>=(number) with the structure if ... else Otherwise good job
