Is 1831 a prime number? What are the divisors of 1831?

## Is 1831 a prime number?

Yes, 1831 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 1831, the only two divisors are 1 and 1831. Therefore 1831 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 1831 is only a multiple of 1 and 1831.

Therefore year 1831 was a prime year.

Since 1831 is a prime number, 1831 is also a deficient number, that is to say 1831 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 1831 without 1831 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 1831

1831 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 1831 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 1831 is about 42.790.

Thus, the square root of 1831 is not an integer, and therefore 1831 is not a square number.

Anyway, 1831 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 1831?

The square of a number (here 1831) is the result of the product of this number (1831) by itself (i.e., 1831 × 1831); the square of 1831 is sometimes called "raising 1831 to the power 2", or "1831 squared".

The square of 1831 is 3 352 561 because 1831 × 1831 = 18312 = 3 352 561.

As a consequence, 1831 is the square root of 3 352 561.

## Number of digits of 1831

1831 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 1831?

The multiples of 1831 are all integers evenly divisible by 1831, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 1831 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 1831. The smallest multiples of 1831 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 1831 too, since 0 × 1831 = 0
• 1831: indeed, 1831 is a multiple of itself, since 1831 is evenly divisible by 1831 (we have 1831 / 1831 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 3 662: indeed, 3 662 = 1831 × 2
• 5 493: indeed, 5 493 = 1831 × 3
• 7 324: indeed, 7 324 = 1831 × 4
• 9 155: indeed, 9 155 = 1831 × 5
• etc.
