// these function do not have return statements and cannot be easily tested with assert
// ====================================================================================

// 1. Write a function that prints `We like Javascript!` 1000 times.

// 2. Write a function `printOdds(start, end)` which prints all of the odd number starting with `start`
//     up to and including `end`.

// 3. Write a function `countByTens` that counts to 10,000 by 10s (printing the sequence 10, 20, 30, .. 10,000).

// these functions must return a value. use the test functions given to test your code
// ====================================================================================

// 4. **Biggest prime.** Write a function `biggestPrime(a, b)` which returns the
//    largest prime number between integers `a` and `b` (inclusive). If either `a` or `b` are negative,
//    you should return the special Javascript value `NaN` (not-a-number) to indicate
//    that the function received illegal parameters. If no prime numbers  are found in the range,
//    return 0. You can use isPrime as defined here.

function isPrime (n) {

if (n < 2) {
return false;
}
for (let i = 2; i < n; i++) {
if (n % i === 0) {
return false;
}
}

return true;
}

function biggestPrime(a, b) {
return 0;
}

function test_biggestPrime() {
console.assert(isNaN(biggestPrime(-2, 5)), "negatives should produce NaN");
console.assert(biggestPrime(8, 10) === 0, "there are no primes in [8, 9, 10]");
console.assert(biggestPrime(42000, 42073) === 42073, "42073 is prime, should be found");
console.assert(biggestPrime(0, 100) === 97, "97 is the largest prime less than 100");

}
test_biggestPrime();

// 5. (hard) **Center text.** The `.length` attributes of a string tells us how
//    many characters are in the string, `"cat".length === 3`. Using this property
//    and a `for` loop, write a function that centers text in the console. Your function
//    must have two parameters -- the text that needs to be centered, and the number
//    of characters in the console. The function returns a new string, padded with
//    enough blank spaces on the left side so that it will be centered. If the text
//    can't be perfectly centered, it should be one space to the left. Do not
//    _The function does not print to the console_.

function centerText(txt, cols) {
return "";
}

function demoCenteredText() {
console.log(centerText("Intro to Computer Programming", 60));
console.log(centerText("Javascript", 60));
console.log(centerText("Fall 2019", 60));
}

// demoCenteredText();

function test_centerText() {
console.assert(centerText("a", 3) === " a", "failed to center  'a', 3");
console.assert(centerText("abc", 10) === "   abc", "failed to center  'abc', 10");
console.assert(centerText("ab cd", 20) === "       ab cd", "failed to center  'ab cd', 20");
}

// 6. (bonus) Consider the `isPrime` example above. Our solution would be considered
//    a **naive** solution -- a solution which solve the problem in a basic, but
//    not most efficient or _elegant_ manner. Thinking (or reading) about prime
//    numbers, can you **refactor** `isPrime` so that it can determine if a number
//    is prime without having to complete all of the iterations between 2 and `n`?

function test_isPrime() {
console.assert(isPrime(0) === false, "zero is not prime");
console.assert(isPrime(1) === false, "1 is not prime");
console.assert(isPrime(2) === true, "2 is prime");
console.assert(isPrime(7) === true, "7 is prime");
console.assert(isPrime(100) === false, "100 is not prime");
// some know primes via:
// https://primes.utm.edu/lists/small/10000.txt
console.assert(isPrime(42073) === true, "42073 is prime");
console.assert(isPrime(104651) === true, "104651 is prime");
console.assert(isPrime(104653) === false, "104653 is not prime");
}
test_isPrime()

// 7. (bonus) Write a function `countPrimes(a, b)` that returns the
// number of primes found between `a` and `b`. Include `a` and `b` in the count if they are primes.

function countPrimes(a, b) {
return 0;
}

function test_countPrimes() {
console.assert(countPrimes(2, 5) === 3, "there are 3 primes in [2..5]");
console.assert(countPrimes(8, 10) === 0, "there are 0 primes in [8..10]");
// 99989  99991 100003 100019 100043 100049 100057 100069 100103 100109
console.assert(countPrimes(99989, 100108) === 9, "there are 9 primes in [99989..100108]");
