> Hi i'm new in programming and in python and i have an assignment that i cant complete. I have to Write a Python program to compute and print the first 200 prime numbers. The output must be formatted with a title and the prime numbers must be printed in 5 properly aligned columns . I have used this code so far :

> divisor = 2
> while divisor <= potentialprime:
> if potentialprime == 2:

> elif potentialprime % divisor == 0:
> return False
> break
> while potentialprime % divisor != 0:
> if potentialprime - divisor > 1:
> divisor += 1
> else:
> return True
>
> while count < int(numprimes):
> if primetest(potentialprime) == True:
> print potentialprime
> count += 1
> potentialprime += 1
> else:
> potentialprime += 1
