# isprime

Determine which array elements are prime

## Description

example

TF = isprime(X) returns a logical array the same size as X. The value at TF(i) is true when X(i) is a prime number. Otherwise, the value is false.

## Examples

expand all

### Determine if Double Integer Values Are Prime

`tf = isprime([2 3 0 6 10])`
```tf =

1     1     0     0     0```

2 and 3 are prime, but 0, 6, and 10 are not.

### Determine if Unsigned Integer Values Are Prime

```x = uint16([333 71 99]);
tf = isprime(x)```
```tf =

0     1     0
```

71 is prime, but 333 and 99 are not.

## Input Arguments
