Build Status

Given the function #secret that accepts a single integer parameter and returns an integer, this program takes one command-line argument (a number) and determines if the #secret function is additive [secret(x+y) = secret(x) + secret(y)], for all combinations x and y, where x and y are all prime numbers less than the number passed via the command-line argument.


  1. gem install secret_number
  2. secret # where # is a positive integer
