Is 1217 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1217?

## Is 1217 a prime number?

Yes, 1217 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 1217, the only two divisors are 1 and 1217. Therefore 1217 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1217 is only a multiple of 1 and 1217.

Since 1217 is a prime number, 1217 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1217 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1217 without 1217 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1217

1217 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1217 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 1217 is about 34.886.

Thus, the square root of 1217 is not an integer, and therefore 1217 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1217 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1217?

The square of a number (here 1217) is the result of the product of this number (1217) by itself (i.e., 1217 × 1217); the square of 1217 is sometimes called "raising 1217 to the power 2", or "1217 squared".

The square of 1217 is 1 481 089 because 1217 × 1217 = 12172 = 1 481 089.

As a consequence, 1217 is the square root of 1 481 089.

## Number of digits of 1217

1217 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1217?

The multiples of 1217 are all integers evenly divisible by 1217, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1217 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1217. The smallest multiples of 1217 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1217 too, since 0 × 1217 = 0
• 1217: indeed, 1217 is a multiple of itself, since 1217 is evenly divisible by 1217 (we have 1217 / 1217 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 2 434: indeed, 2 434 = 1217 × 2
• 3 651: indeed, 3 651 = 1217 × 3
• 4 868: indeed, 4 868 = 1217 × 4
• 6 085: indeed, 6 085 = 1217 × 5
• etc.
