The sum of two prime numbers is 85. What is the product of these two prime numbers?
Prime numbers are numbers that have only two factors -1 and itself.
Answer: The product of the two prime numbers is 166.
Let's find the product.
Since one of the numbers has to be even, 2 will be one of the numbers as it is the only even prime number
Therefore, the only pair of numbers that give the sum 85 will be
2 + 83 = 85
The product of the numbers is
2 × 83 = 166.
Thus, the product of the two prime numbers is 166.
