@Frank, the riddle says “four consecutive PRIME” numbers, not “four consecutive numbers that are also prime”. In math we talk about consecutive primes all the time.

3, 5, 7, 11 is an example of four consecutive prime numbers. 3, 7, 13, 19 are four non-consecutive prime numbers.

For completeness, 2 & 3 are the only consecutive numbers that are also prime.

We use to play with primes in math class all the time. Off the top of my head I knew 2 consecutively that added to 100 (47, 53)

Ps… a graphic of Optimus Prime would have went well here. Next one :)

Is this possible? I interpret consecutive as 4 numbers immediately after each other.

51+53+57+59=220

@Lehcar. 57 isn’t a prime; its divisible by 3 & 19.

Crabman, you are today’s winner!

47 + 53 + 59 + 61 = 220
