Have you *tried*?
Perhaps you should try something a little bit less ambitious. Write a
program to test whether a number is divisible by 3. Then write a
program to test whether a number is divisible by 3 or 5. Then write a
third program to test whether a number is divisible by 3, 5 or 7.
Then generalise that third program.
Off you go. Come back when you have some code. Even if it isn't working
code, at least try something.
