# Java program to print prime numbers below 100

Any whole number which is greater than 1 and has only two factors that is 1 and the number itself, is called a prime number. Other than these two number it has no positive divisor. For example

7 = 1 × 7

Few prime numbers are − 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11 etc.

## Algorithm

• 1. Take integer variable A
• 2. Divide the variable A with (A-1 to 2)
• 3. If A is not divisible by any value (A-1 to 2), except itself it is a prime number.
• 4. Repeat this for all the numbers starting from 2 to the required limit.

## Example

Live Demo

public class First100Primes {
public static void main(String args[]){

for(int i = 2; i<=100;){
int prime = 1;
for(int loop = 2; loop <=i; loop++) {
if((i % loop) == 0 &amp;&amp; loop!=i) {
prime = 0;
}
}
if (prime != 0){
System.out.println(i+" is a prime number");
i++;
}
else
i ++;
}
}
}
