## Implementations

### Aheui

This may theoretically work, but it is very ineffective. It even failed on Try It Online.

Second try that also fails:

Third attempt based on the C program below, and it still fails:

방박싹사뿌서 너벌벌석차ㅣ아순머희멍터 ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ우빠쏞 ㅇㅇㅇ우ㅇㅇ삲뺘아빠따삭빠삲싹삭주 ㅇㅇㅇ어ㅇㅇ쏜ㅇㅇ루석썩뻐섢뻐석처수 ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ솒ㅇㅇ처숙어마숞터너벌벌 ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ숀ㅇ더너벌벌ㅇ쏜뻐숙 ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ쏜ㅇㅇ뻐

There may be an alternative that uses the queue.

### C

This program works on Try It Online.

#include <stdio.h> int e[10002]={0},i=0,ei=0; int a=2; int c=10001; int main(){ for(a=2;c>0;++a){ if(ei==0){e[ei]=a;++ei;--c;} else{ for(i=0;e[i]*e[i]<=a;++i){ if(a%e[i]==0){break;} } if(a%e[i]!=0){e[ei]=a;++ei;--c;} } } printf("%d",a-1); return 0; }
