## Is 293 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 293 is about 17.117.

Thus, the square root of 293 is not an integer, and therefore 293 is not a square number.

Anyway, 293 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 293?

The square of a number (here 293) is the result of the product of this number (293) by itself (i.e., 293 × 293); the square of 293 is sometimes called "raising 293 to the power 2", or "293 squared".

The square of 293 is 85 849 because 293 × 293 = 2932 = 85 849.

As a consequence, 293 is the square root of 85 849.

## Number of digits of 293

293 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 293?

The multiples of 293 are all integers evenly divisible by 293, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 293 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 293. The smallest multiples of 293 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 293). 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 17.117). 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.
