The product of the …five smallest two-digit prime numbers is closest to which of the following powers of 10?
(A) \(10^9\)
(B) \(10^8\)
(C) \(10^7\)
(D) \(10^6\)
(E) \(10^5\)

One can also use the following approximation:

\(11*13*17*18*23\approx{10*10*20*20*25}=100*10,000=10^6\)

Answer: D.

Similar question to practice:

Hope it helps.

The product is 11*13*17*19*23

Try some approximation:
10*15*15*20*20 = 4,000*225=900,000, this would be somewhat smaller than the real product.
10*15*15*20*25 = 2250*500=1,250,000, this for sure is larger.
My bet is \(10^6\).

The product of the 5 smallest two-digit primes is 11 x 13 x 17 x 19 x 23, which we can approximate as the product 10 x 10 x 20 x 20 x 20 = 800,000. We see that this is closest to 1,000,000, or 10^6.

Answer: D
