Geek Challenge Results: Primetime Telephone Numbers

Geek Challenge Results: Primetime Telephone Numbers

In last month's Geek Challenge, we asked what number contains 22 primes?  This was a unique problem that needed to utilize at least a little bit of computation (to check if something is prime or not). Luckily, prime calculators are a dime a dozen across the interwebs and many computer languages have a “prime check” method built in. Congrats to our winner, Alex Bruno! A few people commented on the problem being too constrained, giving the amount of included prime n...

Using an S7-1500 PLC as a Modbus RTU Slave

Geek Challenge: Primetime Telephone Numbers

I was listening to the radio, and some self-proclaimed geek said that her phone number was "seven prime numbers." At first, I interpreted this as "seven prime digits," which is probably what she meant. But then it got me thinking, 23 has three prime numbers in it (2, 3, and 23), and 373 contains six primes! The most primes you can pack into a seven-digit number is 22, so what number contains 22 primes?  Remember: neither 0 nor 1 are prime; and 5003 contains 5...
