PHP | gmp_nextprime() Function

The gmp_nextprime() is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to calculate the prime number just greater than a given GMP number(GNU Multiple Precision : For large numbers).

Syntax:

gmp_nextprime($num)

Parameters: This function accepts a GMP number $num as a mandatory parameter as shown in the above syntax whose next prime we want to find. This parameter can be a GMP object in PHP version 5.6 and later, or we are also allowed to pass a numeric string provided that it is possible to convert that string to a number.

Return Value: This function returns a GMP number which is the prime number just greater than the GMP number passed to it as a parameter.

Examples:



Input : gmp_nextprime("15")
Output : 17

Input : gmp_nextprime("21")
Output : 23
