## Is 185 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 185 is about 13.601.

Thus, the square root of 185 is not an integer, and therefore 185 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 185?

The square of a number (here 185) is the result of the product of this number (185) by itself (i.e., 185 × 185); the square of 185 is sometimes called "raising 185 to the power 2", or "185 squared".

The square of 185 is 34 225 because 185 × 185 = 1852 = 34 225.

As a consequence, 185 is the square root of 34 225.

## Number of digits of 185

185 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 185?

The multiples of 185 are all integers evenly divisible by 185, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 185 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 185. The smallest multiples of 185 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 185 too, since 0 × 185 = 0
• 185: indeed, 185 is a multiple of itself, since 185 is evenly divisible by 185 (we have 185 / 185 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 370: indeed, 370 = 185 × 2
• 555: indeed, 555 = 185 × 3
• 740: indeed, 740 = 185 × 4
• 925: indeed, 925 = 185 × 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 185). 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 13.601). 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.
