13. Okay.

14. I actually made a puzzle of 1 + 4 = 9 = 4 + 9 = ?.

Now, look:

2 is the first prime number, and 3 is the second prime number. Add the orders, 1 + 2 = 3rd prime number = 5.

3 is the second prime number, and 5 is the third prime number. 2 + 3 = 5th prime number = 2, 3, 5, 7, **11**.

15. What is the 17th prime number?

16. Square the 17th prime number, and what is it?
