Year 6 Investigates: The Best Number

2019 is the smallest number that can be written in 6 ways as the sum of the squares of 3 primes:

7² + 11² + 43² = 2019

7² + 17² + 41² = 2019

13² + 13² + 41² = 2019

11² + 23² + 37² = 2019

17² + 19² + 37² = 2019

23² + 23² + 31² = 2019

Choose a number which you believe to be 'the best number' and justify your choice.
