Hi;

You sure are happy! Anymore?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

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.
