Primes numbers are scary

Do you know that the sum of digits of first \( 100 \) \(prime \) \( numbers \) is \(1111\).

Can anyone tell me how to calculate that ?

You can write a program to calculate it. I used Python and it is as follows. Note that p is a list of at least the first 100 primes.

 p = [2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71,73,79,83,89,97,101,103,107,109,113,127,131,

 s = ''
 for i in range(100):
      s += str(p[i])

 sum = 0    
 for j in range(len(s)):
      sum += int(s[j])

 print sum

Sir , is there any other way to do it ? I don't know about Python or something like that.

I don't think so or else we can predict the occurrence of primes, which we can't.

Do you know that- 1 +12+123+1234......+123456789+9+98+987.......+987654321= 1234567890.........

imagine incredible maths

Curiously enough, the number of triangles in a straight-edge \(K_6\) graph is \(111\). (See here)

Coincidental numbers appear everywhere!

I think you can use the Arithmetic Series . search it :D
