## Is 215 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 215 is about 14.663.

Thus, the square root of 215 is not an integer, and therefore 215 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 215?

The square of a number (here 215) is the result of the product of this number (215) by itself (i.e., 215 × 215); the square of 215 is sometimes called "raising 215 to the power 2", or "215 squared".

The square of 215 is 46 225 because 215 × 215 = 2152 = 46 225.

As a consequence, 215 is the square root of 46 225.

## Number of digits of 215

215 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 215?

The multiples of 215 are all integers evenly divisible by 215, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 215 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 215. The smallest multiples of 215 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 215 too, since 0 × 215 = 0
• 215: indeed, 215 is a multiple of itself, since 215 is evenly divisible by 215 (we have 215 / 215 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 430: indeed, 430 = 215 × 2
• 645: indeed, 645 = 215 × 3
• 860: indeed, 860 = 215 × 4
• 1 075: indeed, 1 075 = 215 × 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 215). 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 14.663). 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.
