## Is 226 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 226 is about 15.033.

Thus, the square root of 226 is not an integer, and therefore 226 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 226?

The square of a number (here 226) is the result of the product of this number (226) by itself (i.e., 226 × 226); the square of 226 is sometimes called "raising 226 to the power 2", or "226 squared".

The square of 226 is 51 076 because 226 × 226 = 2262 = 51 076.

As a consequence, 226 is the square root of 51 076.

## Number of digits of 226

226 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 226?

The multiples of 226 are all integers evenly divisible by 226, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 226 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 226. The smallest multiples of 226 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 226 too, since 0 × 226 = 0
• 226: indeed, 226 is a multiple of itself, since 226 is evenly divisible by 226 (we have 226 / 226 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 452: indeed, 452 = 226 × 2
• 678: indeed, 678 = 226 × 3
• 904: indeed, 904 = 226 × 4
• 1 130: indeed, 1 130 = 226 × 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 226). 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 15.033). 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.
