Is 11587 a prime number? What are the divisors of 11587?

## Is 11587 a prime number?

Yes, 11587 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 11587, the only two divisors are 1 and 11587. Therefore 11587 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 11587 is only a multiple of 1 and 11587.

Since 11587 is a prime number, 11587 is also a deficient number, that is to say 11587 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 11587 without 11587 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 11587

11587 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 11587 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 11587 is about 107.643.

Thus, the square root of 11587 is not an integer, and therefore 11587 is not a square number.

Anyway, 11587 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 11587?

The square of a number (here 11587) is the result of the product of this number (11587) by itself (i.e., 11587 × 11587); the square of 11587 is sometimes called "raising 11587 to the power 2", or "11587 squared".

The square of 11587 is 134 258 569 because 11587 × 11587 = 115872 = 134 258 569.

As a consequence, 11587 is the square root of 134 258 569.
