Is 1559 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1559?

## Is 1559 a prime number?

Yes, 1559 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 1559, the only two divisors are 1 and 1559. Therefore 1559 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1559 is only a multiple of 1 and 1559.

Since 1559 is a prime number, 1559 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1559 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1559 without 1559 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1559

1559 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1559 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 1559 is about 39.484.

Thus, the square root of 1559 is not an integer, and therefore 1559 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1559 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1559?

The square of a number (here 1559) is the result of the product of this number (1559) by itself (i.e., 1559 × 1559); the square of 1559 is sometimes called "raising 1559 to the power 2", or "1559 squared".

The square of 1559 is 2 430 481 because 1559 × 1559 = 15592 = 2 430 481.

As a consequence, 1559 is the square root of 2 430 481.

## Number of digits of 1559

1559 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1559?

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1559 too, since 0 × 1559 = 0
• 1559: indeed, 1559 is a multiple of itself, since 1559 is evenly divisible by 1559 (we have 1559 / 1559 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 3 118: indeed, 3 118 = 1559 × 2
• 4 677: indeed, 4 677 = 1559 × 3
• 6 236: indeed, 6 236 = 1559 × 4
• 7 795: indeed, 7 795 = 1559 × 5
• etc.
