Here you learn check prime of number in Java, You are given a number N and the task of the program to prime check in Java.

A prime number is a natural number and that is greater than 1. Prime Number is divisible by 1 or itself. Therefore, any number divisible by any other number instead of 1 and itself is not a prime number.

0 and 1 are not considered as prime numbers.

Java Program to check Prime of Number

``````
import java.util.*;

public class Main

public static void main(String[] args)
Scanner scn = new Scanner(System.in);
int n;
boolean flag = false;
n = scn.nextInt();
int count  = 0;
for(int i = 2; i*i <=n ;i++)
if(n%i == 0)
count++;
break;

if(count == 0)
System.out.println("prime");

else
System.out.println("not prime");

``````

Output

```

not prime

```

In the above article, I shared a Java program to check Prime Number. If you know something new then please comment or send mail to be featured and for contribution to codeamy.in and I also share java program soon.
