Hide and seek with Spiderman(The previous answer was wrong)

Number Theory Level 3

There are 500 windows in a building and Spiderman knows that behind one window, there is a villain. Spiderman labelled each window from 1-500 and using his Spider Senses, received hints to which window the villain is hiding behind. The following are the hints he received:

  • The number comprises three digits.

  • The number is a prime number in a prime position.

  • The number has a digital sum of 11.

  • The square of the number has six distinct digits.

From these hints, find out which window is the villain hiding behind


  • A prime number in a prime position is where you label each prime in their order. For example :

1st - 2

2nd - 3

3rd - 5

4th - 7

If the number is in a prime position(e.g. 2nd, 3rd, llth), it is a prime in a prime position. The first prime in a prime position is therefore 3.

  • A digital sum of a number is the sum of all its digits. For example, the digital sum of 532 is 5+3+2 = 10.
