    How many primes are there of the form 4x+3 less than 100?

    Hi,


    How many primes are there of the form less than ?


    Im thinking the answer is 13, but possible it might be 12? depending on whether x=0, prime=3 counts? or maybe neither are right!

    help appreciated!

    Thanks :-)

    I asked Mathematica, and it gave the list

    3, 7, 11, 19, 23, 31, 43, 47, 59, 67, 71, 79, 83

    which contains 13 primes.
