Python sympy | sieve.extend() method
• Last Updated : 27 Aug, 2019

With the help of sympy.sieve.extend() method, we can grow the sieve to cover all the prime numbers less than equal to a given natural number.

Syntax: sieve.extend(N)
Parameter:
N – It denotes the number up to which the sieve is extended.
Returns: The function does not return anything.

Example #1:

 `# import sympy ``from` `sympy ``import` `sieve`` ` `# Use sieve.extend() method ``sieve.extend(``50``) ``prime_list ``=` `sieve._list``     ` `print``(``"Prime Numbers up to 50 : {}"``.``format``(prime_list))  `

Output:

```Prime Numbers up to 50 : array('l', [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47])
```

Example #2:

 `# import sympy ``from` `sympy ``import` `sieve`` ` `# Use sieve.extend() method ``sieve.extend(``100``) ``prime_list ``=` `sieve._list``     ` `print``(``"Prime Numbers up to 100 : {}"``.``format``(prime_list))  `

Output:

```Prime Numbers up to 100 : array('l', [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97])
```
