# Python Program to Check Prime Number

By | November 16, 2020

In this python tutorial, you will learn how to write a python program to check if a number is Prime or not.

## Prerequisite topics to create this program.

Note:

1 is not a prime number

prime numbers are the concept of positive integer values.

### Steps

• First, we ask the user to enter a number.
• Using the int() function we will convert the entered value into an integer value.
• Using the for loop we will create a loop range from 2 to half of the entered number.
• In the loop we will check if any number can divide the entered integer, if yes then we will break the for loop and print the number is not a prime number
• Throughout the loop, if any number could not divide the entered number then, we will print that the number is a prime.

#### Python Program to Check Prime Number:

Code:

```num = int(input("Enter a Number: "))

if num > 1:
for i in range(2,(num//2)+1):
if num%i==0:
print(num, "is a not prime number")
break

#this if statement checks if the for loop is completely executed
if i==num//2:
print(num, "is a prime number")
else:
print(num,"is not a prime number" )```

Output 1:

```Enter a Number: 13
13 is a prime number```
```Output 2:
Enter a Number: 16
16 is a not prime number```
