Let's start by listing out the perfect squares that are between 100 and 200.

11^2=121

12^2=144

13^2=169

14^2=196

 

Now, let's see if the numbers that are 1 or 2 more than these squares are prime.

121+1=122 NOT PRIME

121+2=123 NOT PRIME

144+1=145 NOT PRIME

144+2=146 NOT PRIME

169+1=170 NOT PRIME

169+2=171 PRIME

196+1=197 PRIME

196+2=198 NOT PRIME


171+197=368

EP, I think it says "BETWEEN 100 and 200. . ." Doesn't that mean not including 100 and 200?
