190

Try with Hints


First try to find the probable digits for the unit place of the prime number.

The two digit prime number should end with $1, 3, 7, 9$ since it is prime and should not divisible by $2$ or $5$.

So now try to find which two digit primes will work here.

So, the primes should be $23, 41, 59, 67$.

Now find the sum of them.
