Is 11497 a prime number? What are the divisors of 11497?

## Is 11497 a prime number?

Yes, 11497 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 11497, the only two divisors are 1 and 11497. Therefore 11497 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 11497 is only a multiple of 1 and 11497.

Since 11497 is a prime number, 11497 is also a deficient number, that is to say 11497 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 11497 without 11497 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 11497

11497 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 11497 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 11497 is about 107.224.

Thus, the square root of 11497 is not an integer, and therefore 11497 is not a square number.

Anyway, 11497 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 11497?

The square of a number (here 11497) is the result of the product of this number (11497) by itself (i.e., 11497 × 11497); the square of 11497 is sometimes called "raising 11497 to the power 2", or "11497 squared".

The square of 11497 is 132 181 009 because 11497 × 11497 = 114972 = 132 181 009.

As a consequence, 11497 is the square root of 132 181 009.
