Two distinct primes, each greater than 20, are multiplied. What is the least possible product of these two primes?

The first two primes greater than 20 are 23 and 29.

23 x 29 = 667

Guest,

Why do you demand a quick answer?

I wish I could command immediate attention off people, what a cushy world that would be.

Then again, I know I am not better than others so I know I would not get away with it, and I would not be so rude as to try.

"Why do you demand a quick answer?"

Hi Melody.  I think it wasn't a demand; the OP said please, so that makes it a request.  But as to why so many say ASAP or the like - my humble opinion, anyway - is that they've waited until the last minute to ask for help and they're panicking.  Maybe they've been attempting to solve the problem up until then, maybe procrastinating, maybe embarrassed to need to seek help... that's something nobody knows but the OP, unless s/he tells.

Maybe but why should this person think that their question should be answered quickly?

Do they think their question is more important than other people's questions?

Is it ok for me to cut into a queue just because I say please? Or would that be rude?

It really doesn't matter why, ...it is still demanding and rude.

The smallest primes above 20 are 23 and 29.

To get the product, multiply these numbers together.

23*29 = 690-23 = 667.
