Is 10559 a prime number? What are the divisors of 10559?

## Is 10559 a prime number?

Yes, 10559 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 10559, the only two divisors are 1 and 10559. Therefore 10559 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 10559 is only a multiple of 1 and 10559.

Since 10559 is a prime number, 10559 is also a deficient number, that is to say 10559 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 10559 without 10559 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 10559

10559 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 10559 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 10559 is about 102.757.

Thus, the square root of 10559 is not an integer, and therefore 10559 is not a square number.

Anyway, 10559 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 10559?

The square of a number (here 10559) is the result of the product of this number (10559) by itself (i.e., 10559 × 10559); the square of 10559 is sometimes called "raising 10559 to the power 2", or "10559 squared".

The square of 10559 is 111 492 481 because 10559 × 10559 = 105592 = 111 492 481.

As a consequence, 10559 is the square root of 111 492 481.
