"The last condition looks incomplete."
I mean the sentence formation is incorrect. Which you have corrected now...haha What reason would you like? [btw, you didn't asked earlier to specify the reason] I just looked at the list of prime numbers and checked with the conditions you gave. Other numbers that I thought were: 113, 131, 137, 173, 197, 311, 313, 317  But 1 is not a prime number So the first number that I got was 373

Whoops, you're right, neither are 537 and 737 so the only result is 373. Adding
