Is 10259 a prime number? What are the divisors of 10259?

## Is 10259 a prime number?

Yes, 10259 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 10259, the only two divisors are 1 and 10259. Therefore 10259 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 10259 is only a multiple of 1 and 10259.

Since 10259 is a prime number, 10259 is also a deficient number, that is to say 10259 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 10259 without 10259 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 10259

10259 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 10259 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 10259 is about 101.287.

Thus, the square root of 10259 is not an integer, and therefore 10259 is not a square number.

Anyway, 10259 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 10259?

The square of a number (here 10259) is the result of the product of this number (10259) by itself (i.e., 10259 × 10259); the square of 10259 is sometimes called "raising 10259 to the power 2", or "10259 squared".

The square of 10259 is 105 247 081 because 10259 × 10259 = 102592 = 105 247 081.

As a consequence, 10259 is the square root of 105 247 081.

## Number of digits of 10259

10259 is a number with 5 digits.

## What are the multiples of 10259?
