# Python | sympy.prime() method

• Last Updated : 26 Aug, 2019

With the help of sympy.prime() method, we can find the nth prime, with the primes indexed as prime(1) = 2, prime(2) = 3, etc.

Syntax: prime(n)

Parameter:
n – It denotes the nth prime number.

Returns: Returns the nth prime number.

Example #1:

 `# import sympy ``from` `sympy ``import` `prime`` ` `n ``=` `5`` ` `# Use prime() method ``nth_prime ``=` `prime(n) ``     ` `print``(``"The {}th prime is {}"``.``format``(n, nth_prime))  `

Output:

```The 5th prime is 11
```

Example #2:

 `# import sympy ``from` `sympy ``import` `prime`` ` `n ``=` `23`` ` `# Use prime() method ``nth_prime ``=` `prime(n) ``     ` `print``(``"The {}rd prime is {}"``.``format``(n, nth_prime))        `

Output:

```The 23rd prime is 83
```
