Hi tutor. I need your help with something I don't understand. In the tutorial, it mentions an example of a range within a range. I'll keep it simplified. How exactly does this work? I'll provide a few examples.
>>> for x in range(0,5):
...for n in range(0,5):
... print(x)
>>> for x in range(0,5):
...for n in range(0,5)
... print(n)
This one comes from the tutorial:
>>> for n in range(2, 10): ... for x in range(2, n): ... if n % x == 0: ... print(n, 'equals', x, '*', n//x) ... break ... else: ... # loop fell through without finding a factor ... print(n, 'is a prime number') ... 2 is a prime number 3 is a prime number 4 equals 2 * 2 5 is a prime number 6 equals 2 * 3 7 is a prime number 8 equals 2 * 4 9 equals 3 * 3
Can you explain what is going on?
