A natural number greater than 1 is a prime number if that number has only two natural divisors; one is the number itself and 1. In this article, I will tell you how to check whether the number is prime or not using the programming language Python and C++.

## Check Prime Number using Python and C++

To write a program to check if the number is prime or not I will use an algorithmic approach. It means that I will frame the solution in the form of an algorithm. We need to write a loop that starts from 2 to n and then we need to check if that number is divisible by any of the numbers. If the number is divisible by any of the numbers then the number is a prime number.

I will first write a Python program to check if the number if Prime or not:

Now let’s see how we can use the C++ programming language to check if the number if Prime or not:

The solution to this problem looks larger using C++ as compared to Python which is very obvious. So, I hope you liked this article on how to check if the number is Prime or not using Python and C++ programming languages. Feel free to ask your valuable questions in the comments section below.
