Is 11779 a prime number? What are the divisors of 11779?

## Is 11779 a prime number?

Yes, 11779 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 11779, the only two divisors are 1 and 11779. Therefore 11779 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 11779 is only a multiple of 1 and 11779.

Since 11779 is a prime number, 11779 is also a deficient number, that is to say 11779 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 11779 without 11779 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 11779

11779 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 11779 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 11779 is about 108.531.

Thus, the square root of 11779 is not an integer, and therefore 11779 is not a square number.

Anyway, 11779 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 11779?

The square of a number (here 11779) is the result of the product of this number (11779) by itself (i.e., 11779 × 11779); the square of 11779 is sometimes called "raising 11779 to the power 2", or "11779 squared".

The square of 11779 is 138 744 841 because 11779 × 11779 = 117792 = 138 744 841.

As a consequence, 11779 is the square root of 138 744 841.
