Calculator Preferences
Prime Number List Generator Sign
Prime Number List Generator

This calculator will create a custom prime numbers list of up to 10,000 primes, with primes ranging from 2 to 104,730. For example, you could either create a delimited list containing the first 100 prime numbers, or a list of the primes that occur between 100 and 500. Plus, you can also tell the generator to format the list into a custom prime numbers chart for printing.

A Data Record is a set of calculator entries that are stored in your web browser's Local Storage. If a Data Record is currently selected in the "Data" tab, this line will list the name you gave to that data record. If no data record is selected, or you have no entries stored for this calculator, the line will display "None".

About

About the Prime Number List Generator

This calculator will allow you to build a set of primes based on your selections and display it in a delimited format of your choice, for copying and pasting and/or importing into other document types (word processing, spreadsheet, etc.).

You can create a set of primes for as high the first 10,000 primes, or a set between any number and 104,730 (to check to see if a number greater than 104,730 is prime, please visit the prime number checker).

For example, you could create a list containing the first 100 prime numbers, or you would create a list of primes between 1 and 100 (25 primes).

Finally, the prime number generator even gives you the option to create a printer friendly prime numbers chart containing your custom list.

Saving Entries:

If your web browser supports Local Storage, you can save your entries to your web browser so won't have to start over on your next visit. Please note that your saved entries can only be retrieved from the same device and web browser you were using when you stored them. If you would like to access your saved entries from any device I invite you to subscribe to the Ad-Free Member Version.

Numbers and Decimals:

Only numeric characters (0-9 and decimal points) may be entered in numeric fields. Non-numeric characters (dollar signs, percent signs, commas, etc.) may cause calculation errors. If the field includes a grid icon, tapping the icon will open a popup keypad which will include only the characters allowed in the field. If your device keypad does not include a decimal point, use this popup keypad to enter decimal numbers where applicable.

Popup Tool Tips:

Tap the info (i) icons for a further explanation of each entry field (you can click [X] or outside of the pop-up tool tips to close them). A summary of these explanations, along with any additional term explanations, can also be found under the Terms tab.

Disclaimer:

Since I can't test for every possible combination of numbers, please be sure to double-check the results of this calculator yourself before considering them to be valid. If you do discover an issue with the calculated results, please report the issue using the feedback form located below the calculator.

Scrolling & Shrinking:

In order to scroll the calculator vertically you will need to swipe just outside of the calculator's dark-blue border, or use the window's far right-hand scroll bar, whichever is applicable to your device.

If the top section of the calculator becomes to tall for your viewport, tapping in the "Enter a problem..." field should reset the top section to its original height.

Disclaimer:

The Algebra Calculator is the only calculator on the site that I did not create myself. And since I did not create it, I don't have access to the code for fixing any issues you may be experiencing. So if you are having issues with the calculator, please visit the support page at Mathway.com for assistance.
