Is 1297 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1297?

## Is 1297 a prime number?

Yes, 1297 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 1297, the only two divisors are 1 and 1297. Therefore 1297 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1297 is only a multiple of 1 and 1297.

Since 1297 is a prime number, 1297 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1297 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1297 without 1297 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1297

1297 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1297 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 1297 is about 36.014.

Thus, the square root of 1297 is not an integer, and therefore 1297 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1297 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1297?

The square of a number (here 1297) is the result of the product of this number (1297) by itself (i.e., 1297 × 1297); the square of 1297 is sometimes called "raising 1297 to the power 2", or "1297 squared".

The square of 1297 is 1 682 209 because 1297 × 1297 = 12972 = 1 682 209.

As a consequence, 1297 is the square root of 1 682 209.

## Number of digits of 1297

1297 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1297?

The multiples of 1297 are all integers evenly divisible by 1297, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1297 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1297. The smallest multiples of 1297 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1297 too, since 0 × 1297 = 0
• 1297: indeed, 1297 is a multiple of itself, since 1297 is evenly divisible by 1297 (we have 1297 / 1297 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 2 594: indeed, 2 594 = 1297 × 2
• 3 891: indeed, 3 891 = 1297 × 3
• 5 188: indeed, 5 188 = 1297 × 4
• 6 485: indeed, 6 485 = 1297 × 5
• etc.
