    I feel like i'm close to getting PS1, but once my counter hits 999, it hits the first inside_if_statement again and thus adds 2 to the 1000th prime. I'm not sure of a way around this... Would someone mind taking a look?

    figured it out--here's the working version: divisor=3 cand=3 count=2 while(count<1001): if cand%divisor==0: if cand==divisor: cand=cand+2 divisor=3 count=count+1 ##print 'inside_if_statement counter '+str(count)+'cand '+str(cand)+'divisor '+str(divisor) if count==1001: cand=cand-2 else: cand=cand-1+1 else: cand=cand+2 divisor=3 ##print 'inside_else_statement counter '+str(count)+'cand '+str(cand)+'divisor '+str(divisor) else: divisor=divisor+1 ##print 'outside_else_statement counter '+str(count)+'cand '+str(cand)+'divisor '+str(divisor) print cand
