In this solution, we will create a function to check if a number is prime.

  1. Copy the code using the "Copy" button above, and paste it in an IDE.
  2. Run the code and call the created function to check if the number is prime.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.

I found this code snippet by searching for "for loop in python" in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in Python3.7

Using this solution, we are able to create a function to check a number is prime in Python with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy to use, hassle free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us check if a number is prime.
