1)Consider a 3-digit natural number abc.How many such 3-digit numbers are there such that ab,bc and ca are all prime?

2 )Consider a 3-digit natural number abc.How many such 3-digit numbers are there such that ab,bc and ca are all prime and abc is also prime?

**Note**: ab ,bc and ca are 2 digit numbers.It is not the multiplicative function.

This question is original.Can someone tell me how to solve this?

Some things to speed up the process is to see is no digit can be even and/or 5.

Using this, some answers to b) are 317, 971, 137, 173, 197, and 719. – Siddhartha Srivastava · 1 year, 5 months ago

Are the answers for part a) and b) the same?Log in to reply

Since there are a lower number of conditions in a) as compared to b), it seems very likely that more numbers should satisfy a). – Siddhartha Srivastava · 1 year, 5 months ago
