You'd think a math Olympiad wouldn't be cheating more or less on line to look for answers. Not my place to say but it is kinda funny

Here is my guess!!


Since there are 4 prime numbers between 0 - 9, therefore, there are: 4C2 =6 combinations:

23, 25, 27, 35, 37, 57 for a total sum of =5, 7, 9, 8, 10, 12. So, for the first 23, you need two of the numbers from the remaining six {0, 1, 4, 6, 8, 9} that will add to 14. And the only 2 numbers that will give you that are 6, 8. I count 28 such combinations. So: 6 x 28 =168.

And that is my guess!!.
