Is 12253 a prime number? What are the divisors of 12253?

## Is 12253 a prime number?

Yes, 12253 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 12253, the only two divisors are 1 and 12253. Therefore 12253 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 12253 is only a multiple of 1 and 12253.

Since 12253 is a prime number, 12253 is also a deficient number, that is to say 12253 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 12253 without 12253 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 12253

12253 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 12253 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 12253 is about 110.693.

Thus, the square root of 12253 is not an integer, and therefore 12253 is not a square number.

Anyway, 12253 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 12253?

The square of a number (here 12253) is the result of the product of this number (12253) by itself (i.e., 12253 × 12253); the square of 12253 is sometimes called "raising 12253 to the power 2", or "12253 squared".

The square of 12253 is 150 136 009 because 12253 × 12253 = 122532 = 150 136 009.

As a consequence, 12253 is the square root of 150 136 009.

## Number of digits of 12253
