## Is 290 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 290 is about 17.029.

Thus, the square root of 290 is not an integer, and therefore 290 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 290?

The square of a number (here 290) is the result of the product of this number (290) by itself (i.e., 290 × 290); the square of 290 is sometimes called "raising 290 to the power 2", or "290 squared".

The square of 290 is 84 100 because 290 × 290 = 2902 = 84 100.

As a consequence, 290 is the square root of 84 100.

## Number of digits of 290

290 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 290?

The multiples of 290 are all integers evenly divisible by 290, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 290 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 290. The smallest multiples of 290 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 290). 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 17.029). 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.
