# PHP program for prime number

We will learn about how to check if a number is prime or not in PHP.

The positive integers having only two factors, 1 and the integer itself are called Prime numbers.  Prime numbers are whole numbers greater than 1.

The first ten primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29.

It should be noted that 1 is a non-prime number.

Lets see below example to check number is prime or not using form in php.

Example :

<?php
\$result="";
{
if (\$num == 1)
return 0;
for (\$i = 2; \$i <= \$num/2; \$i++)
{
if (\$num % \$i == 0)
return 0;
}
return 1;
}

if(isset(\$_POST['submit']))
{
\$num=\$_POST['num'];
if (\$flag== 1)
\$result= \$num . ' is prime number.';
else
\$result= \$num . ' is not prime number.';

}
