it prints this out "2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 6 6 7 7 7 7 7 8 8 8 8 9 9 9 9 10 10 10 11 11 11 12 12 13 13 14 14 15 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 " so it doesn't work..

Oh ok,
so... Am I right ?

The thing is, I know it is wrong the right thing to do would be to directly start at the time you go into the loop. so I tried :

but obviously the error "variable may not have been initialized appeared. Aaand I'm stuck.

You didn't get it right because your variable names "i" and "j" don't mean anything so it's easy to get them confused. Which you did.

I always find it easier to think of an example while I am working on code. In your case:

2 4 6 8 10 ...

you don't want to start at 2, you want to start at 4. Likewise with

3 6 9 12 15 ...

you don't want to start at 3, you want to start at 6. Does a pattern start to appear?

Ok yeah I didn't see that part of the comment before weird.
And yeah I agree and that was what I tried to do by saying "2*i".

I now am officially brain-dead. I get what you mean by naming it nonPrime though but I don't see how that troubles my logic.

I did it found the error for the infinite loop thanks to you, : ) the code brings these number out for an input of 50: 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27 30 33 36 39 42 45 4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36 40 44 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 6 12 18 24 30 36 42 7 14 21 28 35 42 8 16 24 32 40 9 18 27 36 45 10 20 30 40 11 22 33 44 12 24 36 13 26 39 14 28 42 15 30 45 16 32 17 34 18 36 19 38 20 40 21 42 22 44 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 so it appears to work, but I don't want it to take the first numbers for example 2,3,7. Do you have any idea of how to do that ?

Hello, I am trying to code this program that finds and prints out all the prime numbers between two numbers , it compiles fine but in the execution nothing happens, I am suspecting an infinite loop but cannot find the problem. Thank you for your time.

Ok, I will try that, thank you.

Hello, I am coding a program that is using a boolean array to select different values in a interval. All the values are originally set on true, then some values are assigned to false. Is there a way to select all the true values of that array ? I can't find one in the array API in java.
