same here

According to my program here are the first ten integers that need two 
'+'s:
373:   (1 + 3x4 + 3x6x4x5)   -> 38
958:   (1 + 3x4 + 3x3x3x5x7) -> 43
1069:  (1 + 3x4 + 11x4x4x6)  -> 45
1113:  (1 + 3x4 + 5x5x4x11)  -> 45
1117:  (1 + 4x4 + 5x5x4x11)  -> 46
1119:  (1 + 3x6 + 5x5x4x11)  -> 47
1165:  (1 + 3x4 + 4x6x3x4x4) -> 43
1169:  (1 + 4x4 + 4x6x3x4x4) -> 44
1273:  (1 + 3x4 + 5x7x6x6)   -> 44
1293:  (1 + 3x4 + 4x5x4x4x4) -> 43

Anyone know which the first one to need 3 is?
