## Prime number in C: Here we discuss about program for how to check whether number is prime or not.

C Prime Number Program |

In this post we are going to see c prime number program. in which we will see how to check where given number is prime number or not a prime number through a very simple logic in c prime number program.

Before that for your better understanding we will see what is prime number means-

### what is prime number?

"prime number is nothing but the number which can be divisible by only '1' and 'itself number' only."

means a number which cant be decide by any other number other than 1 and itself number.

for example: suppose 5 is a number. 5 can be only divisible by 1 and 5, so that it is prime number. take another number 6, 6 can be divisible by 1,2,3 and 6, so that it is not a prime number.

hope you understand logic of prime number. lets see how to write c prime number program.

### c prime number program

#include<stdio.h>

# include<conio.h>

void main()

{

clrscr();

int num=0,count=0,i=0;

printf("Enter any number to check where it is prime or not:");

scanf("%d",&num);

for(i=1;i<=num;i++)

{

if(num%i==0)

count=count+1;

}

if(count==2)

{

printf("Entered Number is a Prime Number");

}

else

{

printf("Entered Number is Not a Prime Number");

}

getch();

}

Output:

Enter any number to check where it is prime or not: 5

Entered Number is a Prime Number
