## Altenatively,

check_prime = [26, 39, 51, 53, 57, 79, 85]

# iterate through the check_prime list
for num in check_prime:

# search for factors, iterating through numbers ranging from 2 to the number itself
for i in range(2, num):

# number is not prime if modulo is 0
if (num % i) == 0:
print("{} is NOT a prime number, because {} is a factor of {}".format(num, i, num))
break

# otherwise keep checking until we've searched all possible factors, and then declare it prime
if i == num -1:
print("{} IS a prime number".format(num))
