# Highest Prime Number Within the Given Range Java Example.

by Dinesh Thakur Category: Control Structures

Algorithm for Highest Prime Number:

step 2: Set i== 1

step 3: Initialize j==2

step 4: Repeat through step-7 while j less than or equals to num

step 5: If j equals to num then Set i==num and goto 8

step 6: If (num mod)) equals to 0 then num==num-1

step 7: j==j+1

step 8: Print i

Step 9: Exit

Here is the Java Example for Highest Prime Number:

```public class HighestNumberRange

{

public static void main(String args[])

{

int i=prime(100);

System.out.println("value of highest prime is :-"+i);

}

public static int prime(int num)

{

int i=1;

for(int j=2;j<=num;j++)

{

if(j== num)

{

i= num;

break;

}

if(num% j==0)

{

num--;

}

}

return i;

}

}
