```p = Table[Prime[i], {i, 5, 25}]

{11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37,41,43,47,53,59,61,67,71,73,79,83,89,97}

Select[Subsets[p, {3}],
And @@ (PrimeQ /@ (Mean /@ Drop[Subsets[#], 4])) &]

{{11, 47, 71}}

Hi All,

trying to find an efficient way to this in Mathematica.

I found the answer - but it was a manual list manipulation - and it
was ugly!

Any suggestions?

3 Nice Primes:

Find three 2-digit prime numbers such that:

* The average of any two of the three is a prime number, and
* The average of all three is also a prime number

Thanks!
