{
int n, i = 3, count, c;

printf("Enter the number of prime numbers required\n");
scanf("%d",&n);

if ( n >= 1 )
{
printf("First %d prime numbers are :\n",n);
printf("2\n");
}

for ( count = 2 ; count <= n ;  )
{
for ( c = 2 ; c <= i - 1 ; c++ )
{
if ( i%c == 0 )
break;
}
if ( c == i )
{
printf("%d\n",i);
count++;
}
i++;
}

return 0;
}```
