## Programming Problem #1 — starting off slow

In his challenge I ask that you do the following things:

Create a program that will:

1. Use loops to complete the tasks below
2. Print out a list of all the numbers that meet the following criteria, one item per line.
3. Are either: Prime, or Multiples of 3, or 8, but not both 3 and 8, less than 2500

Concepts used: Variables, loops, arithmatic functions, breaks

You should be able to do this by: Lesson 13 — 16 will help.

My solution: –Will come back and add one eventually

Please note that my solutions are not checked thoroughly, and should only be used for reference. They are often non-optimal solutions that could be improved upon (by you!). I keep these intentionally rough for just that reason.

My initial solution, looks to give the right answers, but I’ll check against your solution. My solution isn’t particularly efficient, I’m sure there must be a far more efficient method of calculating primes, and perhaps a relationship between the two divisions. (like in the 3^n homework). Methods would make the code far cleaner too. I’ll update after some looking in to a more efficient prime calculating method.
