## Is 175 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 175 is about 13.229.

Thus, the square root of 175 is not an integer, and therefore 175 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 175?

The square of a number (here 175) is the result of the product of this number (175) by itself (i.e., 175 × 175); the square of 175 is sometimes called "raising 175 to the power 2", or "175 squared".

The square of 175 is 30 625 because 175 × 175 = 1752 = 30 625.

As a consequence, 175 is the square root of 30 625.

## Number of digits of 175

175 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 175?

The multiples of 175 are all integers evenly divisible by 175, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 175 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 175. The smallest multiples of 175 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 175 too, since 0 × 175 = 0
• 175: indeed, 175 is a multiple of itself, since 175 is evenly divisible by 175 (we have 175 / 175 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 350: indeed, 350 = 175 × 2
• 525: indeed, 525 = 175 × 3
• 700: indeed, 700 = 175 × 4
• 875: indeed, 875 = 175 × 5
• etc.

## How to determine whether an integer is a prime number?

To determine the primality of a number, several algorithms can be used. The most naive technique is to test all divisors strictly smaller to the number of which we want to determine the primality (here 175). First, we can eliminate all even numbers greater than 2 (and hence 4, 6, 8…). Then, we can stop this check when we reach the square root of the number of which we want to determine the primality (here the square root is about 13.229). Historically, the sieve of Eratosthenes (dating from the Greek mathematics) implements this technique in a relatively efficient manner.

More modern techniques include the sieve of Atkin, probabilistic algorithms, and the cyclotomic AKS test.
