MATLAB question

  1. May 17, 2007 #1
    How would I write a program that finds all the prime numbers that are less than or equal to a "user-supplied" integer N, implementing the fact that I should only be dividing N by all prime numbers less than sqrt(N)?

    Don't sound like a [strictly-] MATLAB question... but more like a homework problem.

    How would you do it by hand with (say) N=60?

    there should be a function that checks whether a resulting calculation is an integer or not (or you can always make your own function).

    That's the key to this.
