Prime Numbers

2, 3, 5, 7, ... The set of prime numbers is the alphabet of mathematics that allows us to communicate across the universe.

\[2^{2014}+ 1007^4\] Is this sum equal to a prime number?

Mr. White is an approximately forty years old father with 4 sons of distinct ages. Writing his age 3 times in succession, we get a 6-digit number that is equal to the product of his age, his wife's age and his 4 sons' ages.

Give the sum of his wife's age and all 4 sons' ages.

A three-digit number \(N\) has first digit \(a (\neq 0)\), second digit \(b\) and third digit \(c\). \(N = b(10c + b)\) where \(b\) and \((10c + b)\) are primes. Find \(N\).

How many integers from \(1\) to \(100\) inclusive can be written as the product of two (not necessarily distinct) primes?
