# C program to print all prime numbers between 1 to n

Write a C program to print all Prime numbers between 1 to n using loop. How to print all prime numbers between given interval using loop in C program. Logic to print prime numbers in a given range in C program.

Example

Input

```Input lower limit: 1
Input upper limit: 20```

Output

`Prime numbers between 1-20: 2, 3, 5, 7, 13, 17, 19`

## Required knowledge

### What is Prime number?

Prime number is a positive integer greater than 1 that is only divisible by 1 and itself. For example: 2, 3 , 5, 7, 11 are the first five prime numbers.

## Logic to print prime numbers between 1 to n

Step by step descriptive logic to print all prime numbers between 1 to n.

1. Input upper limit to print prime numbers from user. Store it in some variable say end.
2. Run a loop from 2 to end, increment 1 in each iteration. The loop structure should be like `for(i=2; i<=end; i++)`.
3. Inside the loop for each iteration print value of i if it is prime number.

## Program to print prime numbers between 1 to n

``````/**
* C program to print all prime numbers between 1 to n
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int i, j, end, isPrime; // isPrime is used as flag variable

/* Input upper limit to print prime */
printf("Find prime numbers between 1 to : ");
scanf("%d", &end);

printf("All prime numbers between 1 to %d are:\n", end);

/* Find all Prime numbers between 1 to end */
for(i=2; i<=end; i++)
{
/* Assume that the current number is Prime */
isPrime = 1;

/* Check if the current number i is prime or not */
for(j=2; j<=i/2; j++)
{
/*
* If i is divisible by any number other than 1 and self
* then it is not prime number
*/
if(i%j==0)
{
isPrime = 0;
break;
}
}

/* If the number is prime then print */
if(isPrime==1)
{
printf("%d, ", i);
}
}

return 0;
}``````

Once you are done with generating prime numbers between 1 to n. You can easily modify the program to work for any range. To print all prime numbers in given range. You need to input upper as well as lower limit from user. Let us modify the above program to work for prime numbers in given range.

## Program to print prime numbers in given range

``````/**
* C program to print all prime numbers between 1 to n
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int i, j, start, end;
int isPrime;

/* Input upper and lower limit to print prime */
printf("Enter lower limit: ");
scanf("%d", &start);
printf("Enter upper limit: ");
scanf("%d", &end);

printf("All prime numbers between %d to %d are:\n", start, end);

// Make sure that lowerlimit does not go below 2
// Since 2 is first prime number
if(start < 2)
start = 2;

/* Find all Prime numbers between 1 to n */
for(i=start; i<=end; i++)
{
/* Assume that the current number is Prime */
isPrime = 1;

/* Check if the current number i is prime or not */
for(j=2; j<=i/2; j++)
{
/*
* If i is divisible by any number other than 1 and self
* then it is not prime number
*/
if(i%j==0)
{
isPrime = 0;
break;
}
}

/* If the number is prime then print */
if(isPrime==1)
{
printf("%d, ", i);
}
}

return 0;
}``````

Move a step forward and learn this program using functional approach.

Output

```Enter lower limit: 1
Enter upper limit : 100
All prime numbers between 1 to 100 are:
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97,```
