Is 10159 a prime number? What are the divisors of 10159?

## Is 10159 a prime number?

Yes, 10159 is a prime number.

Indeed, the definition of a prime numbers is to have only two distinct positive divisors, 1 and itself. A number is a divisor of another number when the remainder of Euclid’s division of the second one by the first one is zero. Concerning the number 10159, the only two divisors are 1 and 10159. Therefore 10159 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 10159 is only a multiple of 1 and 10159.

Since 10159 is a prime number, 10159 is also a deficient number, that is to say 10159 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 10159 without 10159 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 10159

10159 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 10159 a perfect square number?

A number is a perfect square (or a square number) if its square root is an integer; that is to say, it is the product of an integer with itself. Here, the square root of 10159 is about 100.792.

Thus, the square root of 10159 is not an integer, and therefore 10159 is not a square number.

Anyway, 10159 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 10159?

The square of a number (here 10159) is the result of the product of this number (10159) by itself (i.e., 10159 × 10159); the square of 10159 is sometimes called "raising 10159 to the power 2", or "10159 squared".

The square of 10159 is 103 205 281 because 10159 × 10159 = 101592 = 103 205 281.

As a consequence, 10159 is the square root of 103 205 281.

## Number of digits of 10159
