510 is the sum of consecutive prime numbers **three different ways**.

- 510 = 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 + 67 + 71 + 73 + 79
- 510 = 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 + 67 + 71
- 510 = 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43 + 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 + 67

510 is the hypotenuse of four Pythagorean triples, none of which are primitive:

- 78-504-510
- 216-462-510
- 240-450-510
- 306-408-510

Two of those triples have the same greatest common factor. Can you identify which ones they are?
