Could you put the SHA hash of the answer? With some phrase to salt it

Will you at least clarify the details after the market resolves?

@IsaacKing 17*2 + 71 = 105 is not prime

predicted NO

@levifinkelstein I’m so glad it was as simple as I thought. Cool market as I was terrified when I saw you buy YES LOL

@levifinkelstein That uh, doesn't answer all of my questions.

predicted YES

@IsaacKing The question has a lot of random details and you just have to guess how to interpret it, I couldn't find any non-super-contrived way arriving at a prime number.

@levifinkelstein So there was no underlying narrative to make the described situation and question make sense?

predicted YES

@IsaacKing correct

Thought I was on LinkedIn for a moment there.

bought Ṁ30 of NO

Zero is not a prime number. (There aren't enough knives to make a single complete passthrough hole.)
