Is 2503 a prime number? What are the divisors of 2503?

## Is 2503 a prime number?

Yes, 2503 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 2503, the only two divisors are 1 and 2503. Therefore 2503 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 2503 is only a multiple of 1 and 2503.

Since 2503 is a prime number, 2503 is also a deficient number, that is to say 2503 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 2503 without 2503 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 2503

2503 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 2503 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 2503 is about 50.030.

Thus, the square root of 2503 is not an integer, and therefore 2503 is not a square number.

Anyway, 2503 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 2503?

The square of a number (here 2503) is the result of the product of this number (2503) by itself (i.e., 2503 × 2503); the square of 2503 is sometimes called "raising 2503 to the power 2", or "2503 squared".

The square of 2503 is 6 265 009 because 2503 × 2503 = 25032 = 6 265 009.

As a consequence, 2503 is the square root of 6 265 009.

## Number of digits of 2503

2503 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 2503?

The multiples of 2503 are all integers evenly divisible by 2503, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 2503 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 2503. The smallest multiples of 2503 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 2503 too, since 0 × 2503 = 0
• 2503: indeed, 2503 is a multiple of itself, since 2503 is evenly divisible by 2503 (we have 2503 / 2503 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 5 006: indeed, 5 006 = 2503 × 2
• 7 509: indeed, 7 509 = 2503 × 3
• 10 012: indeed, 10 012 = 2503 × 4
• 12 515: indeed, 12 515 = 2503 × 5
• etc.
