A Complex Python Program dealing with Prime Numbers!

"Given natural numbers N and b, find the first N base-b digit prime number in consecutive base-b digits of e."

N and b are to be treated as inputs. I will be using base-7 digits of e as my base-b.

I am a beginner in python and was thrown at with this problem to get a feel of how python works. Since I do not know how to get started on this, I was wondering if someone would offer some sort of an algorithm to solving this problem. Perhaps a step by step guideline to get to the solution. I am not asking for the entire program to be written in front of me as that would be cheating.

Any help?
