## Python break statement:

The break statement in Python is used to bring the control out of the loop when some external condition is triggered. The break statement breaks out of the innermost enclosing for or while loop.

### Syntax :

The signature for the break statement is as shown below.

``break``

### Flow diagram – break statement: ### Python break Examples:

Example 1: In this example, we will demonstrate the break statement while printing a prime number less than 10.

``````for n in range(2, 10):
for x in range(2, n):
if n % x == 0:
print(n, 'equals', x, '*', n//x)
break
else:
print(n, 'is a prime number')
``````

Output

``````2 is a prime number
3 is a prime number
4 equals 2 * 2
5 is a prime number
6 equals 2 * 3
7 is a prime number
8 equals 2 * 4
9 equals 3 * 3
``````

Example 2: In this case, we will use the break statement with a list items.

``````#Initializing
l1=['Mumbai','Thane','Palghar','Ratnagiri']
for city in l1:
if city == 'Thane':
break
else:
print (city)

``````

Output

``````Mumbai
``````

Example 3: In this example, We will use break statement while printing the fibonacci series till the number 10.

``````#Initializing
fib=0
f1=0
f2=1
print(f1," ",f2)
fibo=0
# Using break statements
while True:
if fibo<10:
break
else:
fibo=f1+f2
print(fibo)
f1=f2
f2=fibo
``````

Output

``````0   1
1
2
3
5
8
13
``````
