# Simple Python program to find the sum of prime numbers between two given digits

In this post I will explain you how to find if a number is prime or not and then add the prime numbers between two given numbers.

First of all let us check if a number is prime or not:

```def checkPrime(n):
flag = 0
for j in range(2,n):
#print(n,j)
if(n%j == 0):
flag = 1
#print(flag)
if(flag == 1):
return 0
else:
return n```

As you can see this subroutine does the job of checking if a number is prime or not. If we are good at Math then this logic is pretty simple. But still let me explain, a prime number is the one that is divisible by 1 and itself. So simply we need to find a number when divided by any number lower than it gives a reminder equal to zero which means it is divisble by that number.

In our subroutine the part if(n%j ==0) does the same. And now the remaining portion of adding all the prime numbers between two given numbers.

```#program to find sum of primes between two given numbers
def checkPrime(n):
flag = 0
for j in range(2,n):
#print(n,j)
if(n%j == 0):
flag = 1
#print(flag)
if(flag == 1):
return 0
else:
return n
#execution starts from here
a = int(input("Enter first number: "))
b = int(input("Enter second number: "))
total = 0 #variable to store sum of primes
for i in range(a,b):
res = checkPrime(i)
total += res
print(total)```

In the rest of the program we take user input and check the primes between those numbers and add them up to get result.
