## Is 287 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 287 is about 16.941.

Thus, the square root of 287 is not an integer, and therefore 287 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 287?

The square of a number (here 287) is the result of the product of this number (287) by itself (i.e., 287 × 287); the square of 287 is sometimes called "raising 287 to the power 2", or "287 squared".

The square of 287 is 82 369 because 287 × 287 = 2872 = 82 369.

As a consequence, 287 is the square root of 82 369.

## Number of digits of 287

287 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 287?

The multiples of 287 are all integers evenly divisible by 287, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 287 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 287. The smallest multiples of 287 are:

## 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 287). 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 16.941). 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.
