If p is a prime number greater than 2, what is the value of p?

1. There are total of 100 prime numbers between 1 and p+1
2. There are total of p prime numbers between 1 and 3912

Friends,

Pls give me a hand!
Many thanks

It just asks to determine, we don't need to count (it's not PS but DS )
D
(1) count 100 prime number, the 100th is p
(2) count from 1->3912

Slightly later...

D

It is "true" DS. We have not to solve the problem, we have to say that the problem can be solved.

1. There are total of 100 prime numbers between 1 and p+1
The condition unambiguously says that p is 100th prime number. So, we can write out all 100 consecutive primes numbers and find p. sufficient.

2. There are total of p prime numbers between 1 and 3912.
the same logic as in the fist condition. sufficient.

I even dare to say that p=3911. Why? Because I did not remember any DS, in which 2 conditions will be sufficient separately and lead to different values.

No. 3911 is a 541th prime number.....

Hey,

The color one is exactly what I want to learn from you, guys. I have the same logic approach as your. I think if it is a PS, maybe we must seat and list all the prime number from 2 to p+1. That is imppossible for me. That is why I need your hand!
Thanks

No. 3911 is a 541th prime number. I think you do not need to seat a time to count each number. Right?

Hmm, i won't count, guess my 20% and move... if i count to 15 prime numbers or even less, i surely mix them up

Of cause, I did not count, I just used google to check up my assumption...
