Is_prime returns true for 9 instead of false



My code returns the following error "Oops, try again. Your function fails on is_prime(9). It returns True when it should return False."

All other numbers seem to work.

def is_prime(x):
    if x==2:
        return True
    elif x>2:
        for n in range(2, x):
            if x%n==0:
                return False
                return True
        return False
print is_prime(3)


I believe this discussion holds the answer to your question


Thank you, that is helpful.


Glad to help! Happy coding :smiley:
