Is 1721 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1721?

Is 1721 a prime number?

Yes, 1721 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 1721, the only two divisors are 1 and 1721. Therefore 1721 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1721 is only a multiple of 1 and 1721.

Since 1721 is a prime number, 1721 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1721 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1721 without 1721 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 1721

1721 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 1721 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 1721 is about 41.485.

Thus, the square root of 1721 is not an integer, and therefore 1721 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1721 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 1721?

The square of a number (here 1721) is the result of the product of this number (1721) by itself (i.e., 1721 × 1721); the square of 1721 is sometimes called "raising 1721 to the power 2", or "1721 squared".

The square of 1721 is 2 961 841 because 1721 × 1721 = 17212 = 2 961 841.

As a consequence, 1721 is the square root of 2 961 841.

Number of digits of 1721

1721 is a number with 4 digits.

What are the multiples of 1721?

The multiples of 1721 are all integers evenly divisible by 1721, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1721 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1721. The smallest multiples of 1721 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1721 too, since 0 × 1721 = 0
  • 1721: indeed, 1721 is a multiple of itself, since 1721 is evenly divisible by 1721 (we have 1721 / 1721 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 3 442: indeed, 3 442 = 1721 × 2
  • 5 163: indeed, 5 163 = 1721 × 3
  • 6 884: indeed, 6 884 = 1721 × 4
  • 8 605: indeed, 8 605 = 1721 × 5
  • etc.
