[SOLVED] Question 2

- Let x be the smallest integer greater than 2000 that is the product of seven primes.
- Let y be the largest integer smaller than 2000 that is the product of seven primes.

What is the value of x - y?
 
Here's a try.

Not sure if this is correct but here goes:

x = 3^7 = 2,187.

y = 2^6 * 31 = 1,984.

2,187 - 1,984 = 203.
