Is 21661 a prime number? What are the divisors of 21661?

## Is 21661 a prime number?

Yes, 21661 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 21661, the only two divisors are 1 and 21661. Therefore 21661 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 21661 is only a multiple of 1 and 21661.

Since 21661 is a prime number, 21661 is also a deficient number, that is to say 21661 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 21661 without 21661 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 21661

21661 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 21661 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 21661 is about 147.177.

Thus, the square root of 21661 is not an integer, and therefore 21661 is not a square number.

Anyway, 21661 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 21661?

The square of a number (here 21661) is the result of the product of this number (21661) by itself (i.e., 21661 × 21661); the square of 21661 is sometimes called "raising 21661 to the power 2", or "21661 squared".

The square of 21661 is 469 198 921 because 21661 × 21661 = 216612 = 469 198 921.

As a consequence, 21661 is the square root of 469 198 921.

## Number of digits of 21661

21661 is a number with 5 digits.

## What are the multiples of 21661?
