Loop through some numbers - for example, 2 through 100 - and check each one whether it is a prime number (write a second loop to test whether it is divisible by any number between 2 and the number minus 1). If, in this second loop, you find a factor that is greater than 1 and less than the number, it is not a prime, and you can print it out.
