53 is found by:

DATA 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19
DIM pr(8)
FOR i = 1 TO 8
  READ pr(i)
NEXT
i = 20
DO
 i = i + 1
 good = 1
 FOR j = 1 TO 8
  q = i \ pr(j)
  IF q * pr(j) = i THEN good = 0: EXIT FOR
 NEXT
 IF good THEN
   n$ = LTRIM$(STR$(i))
   l = LEN(n$)
   s = 0
   FOR j = 1 TO l
     s = s + VAL(MID$(n$, j, 1))
   NEXT
   avg = s / l
   IF avg = INT(avg) THEN
    IF avg MOD 2 = 0 AND avg > 2 AND avg < 9 THEN
      PRINT i
      ct = ct + 1
      IF ct = 40 THEN END
    END IF
   END IF
 END IF
LOOP
