Is 1523 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1523?

## Is 1523 a prime number?

Yes, 1523 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 1523, the only two divisors are 1 and 1523. Therefore 1523 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1523 is only a multiple of 1 and 1523.

Since 1523 is a prime number, 1523 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1523 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1523 without 1523 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1523

1523 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1523 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 1523 is about 39.026.

Thus, the square root of 1523 is not an integer, and therefore 1523 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1523 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1523?

The square of a number (here 1523) is the result of the product of this number (1523) by itself (i.e., 1523 × 1523); the square of 1523 is sometimes called "raising 1523 to the power 2", or "1523 squared".

The square of 1523 is 2 319 529 because 1523 × 1523 = 15232 = 2 319 529.

As a consequence, 1523 is the square root of 2 319 529.

## Number of digits of 1523

1523 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1523?

The multiples of 1523 are all integers evenly divisible by 1523, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1523 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1523. The smallest multiples of 1523 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1523 too, since 0 × 1523 = 0
• 1523: indeed, 1523 is a multiple of itself, since 1523 is evenly divisible by 1523 (we have 1523 / 1523 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 3 046: indeed, 3 046 = 1523 × 2
• 4 569: indeed, 4 569 = 1523 × 3
• 6 092: indeed, 6 092 = 1523 × 4
• 7 615: indeed, 7 615 = 1523 × 5
• etc.
