Is 2237 a prime number? What are the divisors of 2237?

Is 2237 a prime number?

Yes, 2237 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 2237, the only two divisors are 1 and 2237. Therefore 2237 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 2237 is only a multiple of 1 and 2237.

Since 2237 is a prime number, 2237 is also a deficient number, that is to say 2237 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 2237 without 2237 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 2237

2237 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 2237 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 2237 is about 47.297.

Thus, the square root of 2237 is not an integer, and therefore 2237 is not a square number.

Anyway, 2237 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 2237?

The square of a number (here 2237) is the result of the product of this number (2237) by itself (i.e., 2237 × 2237); the square of 2237 is sometimes called "raising 2237 to the power 2", or "2237 squared".

The square of 2237 is 5 004 169 because 2237 × 2237 = 22372 = 5 004 169.

As a consequence, 2237 is the square root of 5 004 169.

Number of digits of 2237

2237 is a number with 4 digits.

What are the multiples of 2237?

The multiples of 2237 are all integers evenly divisible by 2237, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 2237 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 2237. The smallest multiples of 2237 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 2237 too, since 0 × 2237 = 0
  • 2237: indeed, 2237 is a multiple of itself, since 2237 is evenly divisible by 2237 (we have 2237 / 2237 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 4 474: indeed, 4 474 = 2237 × 2
  • 6 711: indeed, 6 711 = 2237 × 3
  • 8 948: indeed, 8 948 = 2237 × 4
  • 11 185: indeed, 11 185 = 2237 × 5
  • etc.
