Some three-digit primes are formed from a one-digit prime followed by a two-digit prime, others from a two-digit prime followed by a one-digit prime, and some can be in both classes.
I recently bought three pieces of furniture, and each cost a different sum which was one of the last-mentioned type of prime (in euros), but the total I paid was not a prime.
In ascending order, what were the prices of my pieces of furniture?
