## Is 294 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 294 is about 17.146.

Thus, the square root of 294 is not an integer, and therefore 294 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 294?

The square of a number (here 294) is the result of the product of this number (294) by itself (i.e., 294 × 294); the square of 294 is sometimes called "raising 294 to the power 2", or "294 squared".

The square of 294 is 86 436 because 294 × 294 = 2942 = 86 436.

As a consequence, 294 is the square root of 86 436.

## Number of digits of 294

294 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 294?

The multiples of 294 are all integers evenly divisible by 294, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 294 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 294. The smallest multiples of 294 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 294). 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 17.146). 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.
