I think the hints provided in step two could lead to a wrong algorithm:

it says:

"For each number n from 2 to x - 1, test if x is evenly divisible by n."

This could translate to

```
for n in range(2, x-1):
<SOME TEST HERE>
```

The problem with this is that the algorithm will not recognize 2 or 3 because, if x=3, the for would be something like this:

for n in range(2, **3-1**):

That would give us no iterations because it would mean: "from 2 to 2, do the following".

A similar problem applies to x=2:

for n in range(2, **2-1**):

That would mean: "from 2 to 1 do the following:", which makes no sense at all.

Therefore, the algorithm will disregard the first two prime numbers!
