Is 10957 a prime number? What are the divisors of 10957?

## Is 10957 a prime number?

Yes, 10957 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 10957, the only two divisors are 1 and 10957. Therefore 10957 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 10957 is only a multiple of 1 and 10957.

Since 10957 is a prime number, 10957 is also a deficient number, that is to say 10957 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 10957 without 10957 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 10957

10957 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 10957 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 10957 is about 104.676.

Thus, the square root of 10957 is not an integer, and therefore 10957 is not a square number.

Anyway, 10957 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 10957?

The square of a number (here 10957) is the result of the product of this number (10957) by itself (i.e., 10957 × 10957); the square of 10957 is sometimes called "raising 10957 to the power 2", or "10957 squared".

The square of 10957 is 120 055 849 because 10957 × 10957 = 109572 = 120 055 849.

As a consequence, 10957 is the square root of 120 055 849.

## Number of digits of 10957
