Is 19997 a prime number? What are the divisors of 19997?

## Is 19997 a prime number?

Yes, 19997 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 19997, the only two divisors are 1 and 19997. Therefore 19997 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 19997 is only a multiple of 1 and 19997.

Since 19997 is a prime number, 19997 is also a deficient number, that is to say 19997 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 19997 without 19997 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 19997

19997 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 19997 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 19997 is about 141.411.

Thus, the square root of 19997 is not an integer, and therefore 19997 is not a square number.

Anyway, 19997 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 19997?

The square of a number (here 19997) is the result of the product of this number (19997) by itself (i.e., 19997 × 19997); the square of 19997 is sometimes called "raising 19997 to the power 2", or "19997 squared".

The square of 19997 is 399 880 009 because 19997 × 19997 = 199972 = 399 880 009.

As a consequence, 19997 is the square root of 399 880 009.
