    1. You need to understand what is a prime number: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_number#Definition_and_examples 2. You need to understand how it is possible to find out if a number is a prime by trying to divide it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_number#Trial_division 3. When this is clear, write a little program that asks a number to the user and says if it is a prime or not. 4. Build on this program to generate the nth prime number.
