Help me with this problem

Lol do you just want the answer?

Hints are fine too, lol

I’ll just give a few (why not), some may be obvious


The answer must be a product of primes strictly greater than the N-th prime.


It’s always optimal to have the answer be a product of exactly 2 primes. Let’s say we have a valid number that’s a product of k primes. Then we could divide by k - 2 of those primes and the number would still be valid.


There’s no reason to use any primes larger than the (N + 1)-th prime, because that prime is the smallest prime that we’re allowed to divide by.


Directly following (2) and (3), the answer is the (N + 1)-th prime, squared.
