Is 14717 a prime number? What are the divisors of 14717?

## Is 14717 a prime number?

Yes, 14717 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 14717, the only two divisors are 1 and 14717. Therefore 14717 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 14717 is only a multiple of 1 and 14717.

Since 14717 is a prime number, 14717 is also a deficient number, that is to say 14717 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 14717 without 14717 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 14717

14717 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 14717 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 14717 is about 121.314.

Thus, the square root of 14717 is not an integer, and therefore 14717 is not a square number.

Anyway, 14717 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 14717?

The square of a number (here 14717) is the result of the product of this number (14717) by itself (i.e., 14717 × 14717); the square of 14717 is sometimes called "raising 14717 to the power 2", or "14717 squared".

The square of 14717 is 216 590 089 because 14717 × 14717 = 147172 = 216 590 089.

As a consequence, 14717 is the square root of 216 590 089.
