 I want to print 2547-th prime number after 982400000.Listing primes from 982400000 to 982500000 is easy: primes between 982400000 and 982500000 But then I need to get 2547-th element from the list and I don't know how. I've tried using take function like this: take[{primes between 982400000 and 982500000},{2547}] take[(primes between 982400000 and 982500000),{2547}] take[primes between 982400000 and 982500000,{2547}] ...and I've tried part function: Part[primes between 982400000 and 982500000, 2547] Part[{primes between 982400000 and 982500000}, 2547] Part[(primes between 982400000 and 982500000), 2547] {primes between 982400000 and 982500000}[[2547]] (primes between 982400000 and 982500000)[[2547]] ...but with no success. Any ideas?

 From now on I will. Thanks for suggesting.

 It can be a bit subtle to get Wolfram|Alpha to know what one is asking. If it doesn't respond properly to a sensibly phrased query it's always good to submit a report: they are taken seriously and used to update Wolfram|Alpha's parser.

 Ach. Thanks! I was close though - tried this one as the first guess: 2547th prime from 982400000

 This works in Woflram|Alpha 2547th prime after 982400000 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2547th+prime+after+982400000

 It doesn't work in Wolfram|Alpha. I thought that this language works there. It seems I was wrong. Any ideas how to get the result in Wolfram|Alpha?

 Select[Range[982400000 , 982500000], PrimeQ][[2547]] gives 982451653
