Is 1787 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1787?

Is 1787 a prime number?

Yes, 1787 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 1787, the only two divisors are 1 and 1787. Therefore 1787 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1787 is only a multiple of 1 and 1787.

Therefore year 1787 was a prime year.

Since 1787 is a prime number, 1787 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1787 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1787 without 1787 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 1787

1787 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 1787 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 1787 is about 42.273.

Thus, the square root of 1787 is not an integer, and therefore 1787 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1787 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 1787?

The square of a number (here 1787) is the result of the product of this number (1787) by itself (i.e., 1787 × 1787); the square of 1787 is sometimes called "raising 1787 to the power 2", or "1787 squared".

The square of 1787 is 3 193 369 because 1787 × 1787 = 17872 = 3 193 369.

As a consequence, 1787 is the square root of 3 193 369.
