Is 3079 a prime number? What are the divisors of 3079?

## Is 3079 a prime number?

Yes, 3079 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 3079, the only two divisors are 1 and 3079. Therefore 3079 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 3079 is only a multiple of 1 and 3079.

Since 3079 is a prime number, 3079 is also a deficient number, that is to say 3079 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 3079 without 3079 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 3079

3079 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 3079 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 3079 is about 55.489.

Thus, the square root of 3079 is not an integer, and therefore 3079 is not a square number.

Anyway, 3079 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 3079?

The square of a number (here 3079) is the result of the product of this number (3079) by itself (i.e., 3079 × 3079); the square of 3079 is sometimes called "raising 3079 to the power 2", or "3079 squared".

The square of 3079 is 9 480 241 because 3079 × 3079 = 30792 = 9 480 241.

As a consequence, 3079 is the square root of 9 480 241.

## Number of digits of 3079

3079 is a number with 4 digits.

## What are the multiples of 3079?

The multiples of 3079 are all integers evenly divisible by 3079, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 3079 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 3079. The smallest multiples of 3079 are:

• 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 3079 too, since 0 × 3079 = 0
• 3079: indeed, 3079 is a multiple of itself, since 3079 is evenly divisible by 3079 (we have 3079 / 3079 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
• 6 158: indeed, 6 158 = 3079 × 2
• 9 237: indeed, 9 237 = 3079 × 3
• 12 316: indeed, 12 316 = 3079 × 4
• 15 395: indeed, 15 395 = 3079 × 5
• etc.
