I can do it all easily enough, except for finding prime numbers.. I suspect it's something to do with the modulas (remainder) operator but not real sure how to lay it out, any help is appreciated guys & gals. ^^

Here's an easy (and fast) algorithm (pen and paper implementation;) for finding primes up to a certian number:

[code]

// I don't know if 1 is a prime number, so we'll skip it ;)

write down the numbers from 2 to lets say 100.

put a circle around 2 and cross out all higher multiples of 2 (4, 6, 8 etc)

while there are numbers without a circle or a cross:

{

find the next noncrossed number and put a circle around it, and cross out all higher multiples of this number

}

all numbers with circles around them are prime

[/code]

good luck,

Pruyque
