Is 1697 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1697?

## Is 1697 a prime number?

Yes, 1697 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 1697, the only two divisors are 1 and 1697. Therefore 1697 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1697 is only a multiple of 1 and 1697.

Since 1697 is a prime number, 1697 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1697 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1697 without 1697 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1697

1697 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1697 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 1697 is about 41.195.

Thus, the square root of 1697 is not an integer, and therefore 1697 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1697 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1697?

The square of a number (here 1697) is the result of the product of this number (1697) by itself (i.e., 1697 × 1697); the square of 1697 is sometimes called "raising 1697 to the power 2", or "1697 squared".

The square of 1697 is 2 879 809 because 1697 × 1697 = 16972 = 2 879 809.

As a consequence, 1697 is the square root of 2 879 809.

## Number of digits of 1697

1697 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1697?

The multiples of 1697 are all integers evenly divisible by 1697, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1697 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1697. The smallest multiples of 1697 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1697 too, since 0 × 1697 = 0
• 1697: indeed, 1697 is a multiple of itself, since 1697 is evenly divisible by 1697 (we have 1697 / 1697 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 3 394: indeed, 3 394 = 1697 × 2
• 5 091: indeed, 5 091 = 1697 × 3
• 6 788: indeed, 6 788 = 1697 × 4
• 8 485: indeed, 8 485 = 1697 × 5
• etc.
