## Is 184 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 184 is about 13.565.

Thus, the square root of 184 is not an integer, and therefore 184 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 184?

The square of a number (here 184) is the result of the product of this number (184) by itself (i.e., 184 × 184); the square of 184 is sometimes called "raising 184 to the power 2", or "184 squared".

The square of 184 is 33 856 because 184 × 184 = 1842 = 33 856.

As a consequence, 184 is the square root of 33 856.

## Number of digits of 184

184 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 184?

The multiples of 184 are all integers evenly divisible by 184, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 184 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 184. The smallest multiples of 184 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 184 too, since 0 × 184 = 0
• 184: indeed, 184 is a multiple of itself, since 184 is evenly divisible by 184 (we have 184 / 184 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 368: indeed, 368 = 184 × 2
• 552: indeed, 552 = 184 × 3
• 736: indeed, 736 = 184 × 4
• 920: indeed, 920 = 184 × 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 184). 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 13.565). 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.
