Prime number in PHP

A prime number is a natural number/whole number/cardinal number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. A natural number greater than 1 that is not a prime number is called a composite number.
e.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17….etc are prime numbers; while 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16….etc are composite numbers.

Program to determine if the supplied number is Prime or Composite using native bcmod() function.

$num = 26; // desired number to check
for ( $i = 2; $i <= $num - 1; $i++ ) {
    if ( bcmod( $num, $i ) == 0 ) {
        echo $num . " is composite number";
if ( $num == $i )
    echo $num . " is prime number";
