Find the SumMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
Find the sum of all prime numbers between 1 and 100 that are simultaneously 1 greater than a multiple of 4 and 1 less than a multiple of 5.
AnswerNumbers that are 1 greater than a multiple of 4 are 5, 9, 13, 17, 21... where 9 is 1 less than a multiple of 5. lcm(4, 5)=20, therefore the pattern repeats in each 20 numbers.
9 (composite) 29 (prime) 49 (composite) 69 (composite) 89 (prime)
Therefore, the sum of all such numbers is 29+89=118.
