Sunday Times Teaser 3019 – William’s Prime

by Bill Scott

Published Sunday August 02 2020 (link)

William was searching for a number he could call his own. By consistently replacing digits with letters, he found a number represented by his name: WILLIAM.

He noticed that he could break WILLIAM down into three smaller numbers represented by WILL, I and AM, where WILL and AM are prime numbers.

He then calculated the product of the three numbers WILL, I and AM.

If I told you how many digits there are in the product, you would be able to determine the number represented by WILLIAM.
