Task of Challange #19

Create a function that will return in an array the first „nPrimes“ prime numbers greater than a particular number „startAt“

Solution

Explanation

The function getPrimes has to accept two parameters. nPrimes which decides the number of prime numbers we want to get out and startAt which decides where we start to examine the prime numbers.

We create an empty array and set our runningIndex i equal to the startAt variable.

A while loop makes a continuous call to the isPrime function and passes in the number we want to check. This is being done as long as our array is below the nPrimes variable.

So once we have the predestined number of primes, we will skip the while loop and return the array with prime numbers.

I have already explained the isPrime function in Challenge #18.

For example if you call this function with console.log(getPrimes(10, 100)); then the following picture is the output.
