    [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.
