Re: Find the number!

IV.
My number is:
1) Nearest to 50.
2) Nearest to 7^2.
3) A prime number.
What is it?
Make sure the difference is the least so it could be nearest to 50 and 7^2.

A long time since the last post!
9. If I have 1000 strawberries, and I give a prime number of strawberries to my brother, then I will have 977 left. How many strawberries did I give to my brother?
