Here we are given a number, and we need to find whether the given number is prime or not.

Input : A number Output : “The number is prime ” OR “The number is not prime” based on the number.

**Example **−

Input : 23 Output : The number is prime

## ALGORITHM

**Step 1**− Loop from 2 to n/2, i as loop variable**Step 2**− if number is divisible, print “The number is not prime” and flag = 1;**Step 3**− if flag != 1, then print “The number is prime”.**Step 4**− Exit.

## PROGRAM

number=53 i=2 flag=0 while test $i -le `expr $number / 2` do if test `expr $number % $i` -eq 0 then flag=1 fi i=`expr $i + 1` done if test $flag -eq 1 then echo "The number is Not Prime" else echo "The number is Prime" Fi
