The code only checks factors 2, 3, 5, 7, and so produces incorrect answers for starting from 11^2 = 121.
A number of people have posted code to produce primes; why not use one of them?

Hey Attcharapan,
I presume that you're trying to do somethign similar to the Sieve of Erastosthenes alrogithm and find prime numbers in the given range. You may check out the following File Exchange submission implementing the same:https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/73941-erathostenes
