This method returns the value of a type boolean and takes an argument of type int, the parameter will be named number. Add a left brace on next line. in the body of the method add a comment stating that 1 is not a valid prime number, on the next line add an if statement to test whether the value of the parameter number is equal to 1.

Hi Friend,

Try the following code:

import java.util.*; class CheckPrime{ static boolean isPrime(int number){ boolean isPrime = false; int i = (int) Math.ceil(Math.sqrt(number)); while (i > 1) { if((number != i) && (number % i == 0)) { isPrime = false; break; } else if (!isPrime) isPrime = true; --i; } return isPrime; } public static void main(String[] args){ int num = 5; if (isPrime(num)) { System.out.println("Number is Prime"); } else{ System.out.println("Number is not Prime"); } } }

Thanks
