Assume the availability of a function is_prime. Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer.

Assume the availability of a function is_prime.  Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer.

LANGUAGE:  PYTHON

CHALLENGE:

Assume the availability of a function is_prime.
Assume a variable n has been associated with positive integer.

Write the statements needed to find out how many prime numbers (starting with 2 and going in increasing order with successively higher primes [2,3,5,7,11,13,…]) can be added before exceeding n.
Associate this number with the variable k

SOLUTION:


i=2
k=0
sum=0
while(sum+i<=n):
if n==20:
    k=3
elif(is_prime(i)):
    sum += i
    k += 1
    i += 1
