## Is 311 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 311 is about 17.635.

Thus, the square root of 311 is not an integer, and therefore 311 is not a square number.

Anyway, 311 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 311?

The square of a number (here 311) is the result of the product of this number (311) by itself (i.e., 311 × 311); the square of 311 is sometimes called "raising 311 to the power 2", or "311 squared".

The square of 311 is 96 721 because 311 × 311 = 3112 = 96 721.

As a consequence, 311 is the square root of 96 721.

## Number of digits of 311

311 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 311?

The multiples of 311 are all integers evenly divisible by 311, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 311 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 311. The smallest multiples of 311 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 311). 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 17.635). 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.
