Is 3163 a prime number? What are the divisors of 3163?

Is 3163 a prime number?

Yes, 3163 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 3163, the only two divisors are 1 and 3163. Therefore 3163 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 3163 is only a multiple of 1 and 3163.

Since 3163 is a prime number, 3163 is also a deficient number, that is to say 3163 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 3163 without 3163 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 3163

3163 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 3163 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 3163 is about 56.241.

Thus, the square root of 3163 is not an integer, and therefore 3163 is not a square number.

Anyway, 3163 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 3163?

The square of a number (here 3163) is the result of the product of this number (3163) by itself (i.e., 3163 × 3163); the square of 3163 is sometimes called "raising 3163 to the power 2", or "3163 squared".

The square of 3163 is 10 004 569 because 3163 × 3163 = 31632 = 10 004 569.

As a consequence, 3163 is the square root of 10 004 569.

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 3163 too, since 0 × 3163 = 0
  • 3163: indeed, 3163 is a multiple of itself, since 3163 is evenly divisible by 3163 (we have 3163 / 3163 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 6 326: indeed, 6 326 = 3163 × 2
  • 9 489: indeed, 9 489 = 3163 × 3
  • 12 652: indeed, 12 652 = 3163 × 4
  • 15 815: indeed, 15 815 = 3163 × 5
  • etc.
