Do you have to find all solutions? The first one has a solution that is easy to find, and you can even prove that there are no other solutions. The second one has a solution with small numbers, too, but I'm not sure how to prove (with pen&paper) that there are no other solutions.

But the third one I may use Bertrand's Postulate some where.
That is a good idea.
