## Problem with a script to check prime numbers.

Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and I hope I can be useful to this community now that I'm learning Javascript

I have a problem with a Javascript function. It's a simple script to check if a number is a prime number or not. I know there's already lots of this examples on the Internet but I didn't wanted to check them only to see if I could do it on my own.

So, here's my script. It's works just fine, but for some reason, when I write 33, the script says it is a prime number, when it's not. Any ideas?

//Prime number checker
//@rodochoa
var i =parseInt(prompt("Write a number"));
isPrime(i);
function isPrime(num){

if(num === 1 || num ===2 || num===3){
//If the input is 1,2,3 it prints directly without checking
console.log(num + " is a prime number");
}
else{
for(i=2;i<num;i++){
if(num%i===0){
console.log(num + " is not a prime number");
break;
}
else{
console.log(num + " is a prime number");
break;
}
}

}
}

Thanks in advance And greetings from Mexico.

2. Your algorithm is wrong. It considers 33 a prime as soon as it fails to divide it by 2.

Code:
```
<html>
<title>asal sayı</title>
<meta content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" http-equiv="content-type">
<body>
<form name="form1">
<table style=" text-align: left; width: 493px; height: 110px;" >
<tr><td><p>Aşağıdaki kutucuğa 50000'den k&#252;&#231;&#252;k bir sayı yazıp kutucuk dışında bir yere tıklayın.1'den yazdığınız sayıya kadar olan asal sayılar bulunacaktır. B&#252;y&#252;k sayılar yazmanız halinde internet tarayıcınız kilitlenebilir. Yazık ona da.</p></td></tr>

<tr><td><textarea cols="6" rows="1" name="son" onChange="rast()" size="4">100</textarea><a id="bekle">-</a>
</td></tr>

<tr><td><textarea name="kutu" rows="13" cols="50" style="font-size:14; color:blue;">10</textarea></td></tr>
</table>
</form>
<script type="text/javascript">

asal=new Array(2,3,5,7,11,13)
function rast(){

if (document.form1.son.value <= en){bekle.innerHTML=" Hesaplanyor, l&#252;tfen bekleyin !"; setTimeout("rast2()",100)
}
}
function rast2(){
var ns=document.form1.son.value/2,  n=5, m="2"
for(i=7;i<=ns;i++){
nnn=Math.pow(t,0.5)
nnn=(Math.round(nnn))
if(nnn<=5)nnn=5
}
for(k=1; k<=n;k++)m=m+", "+ asal[k]
document.form1.kutu.value=m +"-------" +(n*1+1)+ "  tane"
bekle.innerHTML=" Bitti !"
}
rast();

</script>
</body>
</html>```
