Is 207 a prime number? What are the divisors of 207?

Is 207 a prime number?

It is possible to find out using mathematical methods whether a given integer is a prime number or not.

For 207, the answer is: No, 207 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 207) is as follows: 1, 3, 9, 23, 69, 207.

To be 207 a prime number, it would have been required that 207 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 207 is a multiple of 1
  • 207 is a multiple of 3
  • 207 is a multiple of 9
  • 207 is a multiple of 23
  • 207 is a multiple of 69

To be 207 a prime number, it would have been required that 207 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

Is 207 a deficient number?

Yes, 207 is a deficient number, that is to say 207 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 207 without 207 itself (that is 1 + 3 + 9 + 23 + 69 = 105).

Parity of 207

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

Is 207 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 207 is about 14.387.

Thus, the square root of 207 is not an integer, and therefore 207 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 207?

The square of a number (here 207) is the result of the product of this number (207) by itself (i.e., 207 × 207); the square of 207 is sometimes called "raising 207 to the power 2", or "207 squared".

The square of 207 is 42 849 because 207 × 207 = 2072 = 42 849.

As a consequence, 207 is the square root of 42 849.

Number of digits of 207

207 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 207?

The multiples of 207 are all integers evenly divisible by 207, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 207 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 207. The smallest multiples of 207 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 207 too, since 0 × 207 = 0
  • 207: indeed, 207 is a multiple of itself, since 207 is evenly divisible by 207 (we have 207 / 207 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 414: indeed, 414 = 207 × 2
  • 621: indeed, 621 = 207 × 3
  • 828: indeed, 828 = 207 × 4
  • 1 035: indeed, 1 035 = 207 × 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 207). 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 14.387). 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.
