But your first step is to learn Python and how to write programs in it. That book and others will help with that. You'll have to write lots of simple programs unrelated to primes along the way that help you understand programming concepts. If you already have experience in other languages, the task will be easier. Computer programming is quite natural to some (small children seem to get it much easier than us adults), but I've seen others struggle to grasp the abstract concepts for years. Once you've grasped basic Python programming, you can return top the original problem at hand. Start by identifying the process or algorithm that would find these primes. In other words, how would you do it on pen and paper? Computer programs are not magic. They are only expressions of human thinking. Often some very smart mathematicians have come up with powerful algorithms (a step-by-step process) to do these things, and your job as a programmer is to turn this mathematical process into a computer program using things like loops and Boolean logic. How would you find these primes using your pen, paper, and calculator?
