## Is 177 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 177 is about 13.304.

Thus, the square root of 177 is not an integer, and therefore 177 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 177?

The square of a number (here 177) is the result of the product of this number (177) by itself (i.e., 177 × 177); the square of 177 is sometimes called "raising 177 to the power 2", or "177 squared".

The square of 177 is 31 329 because 177 × 177 = 1772 = 31 329.

As a consequence, 177 is the square root of 31 329.

## Number of digits of 177

177 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 177?

The multiples of 177 are all integers evenly divisible by 177, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 177 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 177. The smallest multiples of 177 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 177 too, since 0 × 177 = 0
• 177: indeed, 177 is a multiple of itself, since 177 is evenly divisible by 177 (we have 177 / 177 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 354: indeed, 354 = 177 × 2
• 531: indeed, 531 = 177 × 3
• 708: indeed, 708 = 177 × 4
• 885: indeed, 885 = 177 × 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 177). 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 13.304). 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.
