# C Exercises: Find the prime numbers within a range of numbers

## C For Loop: Exercise-34 with Solution

Write a program in C to find the prime numbers within a range of numbers.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

``````#include <stdio.h> // Include the standard input/output header file.

int main() {
int num, i, ctr, stno, enno; // Declare variables for the number, loop counters, and range.

// Prompt the user to input the starting number of the range.
printf("Input starting number of range: ");
scanf("%d", &stno); // Read the input from the user.

// Prompt the user to input the ending number of the range.
printf("Input ending number of range : ");
scanf("%d", &enno); // Read the input from the user.

// Print the message indicating the range.
printf("The prime numbers between %d and %d are: \n", stno, enno);

for (num = stno; num <= enno; num++) { // Loop through the numbers in the specified range.
ctr = 0; // Initialize the counter.

for (i = 2; i <= num / 2; i++) { // Loop through possible divisors.
if (num % i == 0) { // If a divisor is found...
ctr++; // ...increment the counter.
break; // Exit the loop.
}
}

if (ctr == 0 && num != 1) // If no divisors were found and the number is not 1...
printf("%d ", num); // ...print the prime number.
}

printf("\n"); // Move to the next line after printing all prime numbers.

return 0; // Return 0 to indicate successful execution.
}

```
```

Sample Output:

```Input starting number of range: 1
Input ending number of range : 50
The prime numbers between 1 and 50 are :
2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 23 29 31 37 41 43 47
```
