Is 2971 a prime number? What are the divisors of 2971?

## Is 2971 a prime number?

Yes, 2971 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 2971, the only two divisors are 1 and 2971. Therefore 2971 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 2971 is only a multiple of 1 and 2971.

Since 2971 is a prime number, 2971 is also a deficient number, that is to say 2971 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 2971 without 2971 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 2971

2971 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 2971 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 2971 is about 54.507.

Thus, the square root of 2971 is not an integer, and therefore 2971 is not a square number.

Anyway, 2971 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 2971?

The square of a number (here 2971) is the result of the product of this number (2971) by itself (i.e., 2971 × 2971); the square of 2971 is sometimes called "raising 2971 to the power 2", or "2971 squared".

The square of 2971 is 8 826 841 because 2971 × 2971 = 29712 = 8 826 841.

As a consequence, 2971 is the square root of 8 826 841.

## Number of digits of 2971

2971 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 2971?

The multiples of 2971 are all integers evenly divisible by 2971, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 2971 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 2971. The smallest multiples of 2971 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 2971 too, since 0 × 2971 = 0
• 2971: indeed, 2971 is a multiple of itself, since 2971 is evenly divisible by 2971 (we have 2971 / 2971 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 5 942: indeed, 5 942 = 2971 × 2
• 8 913: indeed, 8 913 = 2971 × 3
• 11 884: indeed, 11 884 = 2971 × 4
• 14 855: indeed, 14 855 = 2971 × 5
• etc.
