# Java program to print Twin Prime Numbers within a range

#### Question:

Write a Program in Java to print all the Twin Prime numbers within a given range.

Note: Twin Prime numbers are a pair of numbers which are both prime and their difference is 2.

Example: Twin Prime numbers in the range 1 to 100 are :
(3,5) (5,7) (11,13) (17,19) (29,31) (41,43) (59,61) (71,73)

#### Programming Code:

```/**
* The class TwinPrimeRange inputs 2 numbers and prints all the
* twin prime numbers within that range
* @author : www.javaforschool.com
* @Program Type : BlueJ Program - Java
*/

import java.io.*;
class TwinPrimeRange
{
boolean isPrime(int n) //funton for checking prime
{
int count=0;
for(int i=1; i<=n; i++)
{
if(n%i == 0)
count++;
}
if(count == 2)
return true;
else
return false;
}

public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException
{
TwinPrimeRange ob = new TwinPrimeRange();

System.out.print("Enter the lower range : ");
System.out.print("Enter the upper range : ");

if(p>q)
System.out.println("Invalid Range !");
else
{
System.out.println("nThe Twin Prime Numbers within the given range are : ");
for(int i=p; i<=(q-2); i++)
{
if(ob.isPrime(i) == true && ob.isPrime(i+2) == true)
{
System.out.print("("+i+","+(i+2)+") ");
}
}
}
}
}```

#### Output:

Enter the lower range : 1
Enter the upper range : 200

The Twin Prime Numbers within the given range are :
(3,5) (5,7) (11,13) (17,19) (29,31) (41,43) (59,61) (71,73) (101,103) (107,109) (137,139) (149,151) (179,181) (191,193) (197,199)

## ISC 2017 Computer Science Solution + Examiner’s Comments – From the Council

Solution of ISC 2017 Computer science Paper as provided by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations.

1. What is the difference between = and ==?

• = is assignment operator which assigns the value on the right hand side to the variable on the left hand side.
Example: a = 5 will assign variable ‘a’ with a value 5.

== is relational operator which checks whether the value on the left hand side is equal to the value on the right hand side or not.
Example: a == 5 checks if a is equal to 5 or not.

2. why d loop is till q-2… logic…..??

• because if you are told to find twin primes from 1 to 100 and if you run the loop till hundred, you will be checking 2 numbers (99, 101) and (100, 102) which are out of range.

So, if you go till, 98, you will be checking (98, 100) and then stop.

3. nice program….
