Banned Camp Joined: Nov 2018 From: Mumbai Posts: 32 Thanks: 1  Computer program for printing Prime numbers in reverse order. https://www.rapidtables.com/math/num...e_numbers.html I would like to write a computer program which will print prime numbers starting from 100 till 0. i.e. reverse order. Can I get the source code written in any programming language C,C++,Java,C#, Python etc? Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar Last edited by akerkarprash; March 8th, 2019 at 08:13 PM.

Thanks. Output of the program should be 97,89,83,79 and so on till 3. Or 97 89 83 79 till 3 Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar Last edited by akerkarprash; March 9th, 2019 at 01:04 AM. Reason: Content updates.

The code can calculate the primes in ascending order: 2, 3, 5, etc., storing the results, then print them in descending order.

Using UBasic: for n = 99 to 3 step 1 if prmdiv(n) = n then print n next n Ahem!
