I can't figure out Q1 in PS1. I don't understand how to properly utilize the if and else statements, and to code it to repeat until its found the 1000th prime number

    If this is your first time learning a programming language begin with a simpler program. Write a program that asks the user for an integer and replies "even" if it is an even number and "odd" if it is an odd number. The "pseudo-code" for the program is: - ask user to provide a positive integer - assign the input to a variable called "testNum" - if testNum is even print "even" else print "odd" Being able to write this program will give you experience using an if else statement

    An example of how a loop statement looks: x= 0 while x < 10: if "something is true": "Do this" else: "Do this" x += 1 (Adds 1 to x) "Do something" (only does this when x >= to 10)
