Is 319 a prime number? What are the divisors of 319?

Is 319 a prime number?

It is possible to find out using mathematical methods whether a given integer is a prime number or not.

For 319, the answer is: No, 319 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 319) is as follows: 1, 11, 29, 319.

To be 319 a prime number, it would have been required that 319 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 319 is a multiple of 1
  • 319 is a multiple of 11
  • 319 is a multiple of 29

To be 319 a prime number, it would have been required that 319 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

However, 319 is a semiprime (also called biprime or 2-almost-prime), because it is the product of a two non-necessarily distinct prime numbers. Indeed, 319 = 11 x 29, where 11 and 29 are both prime numbers.

Is 319 a deficient number?

Yes, 319 is a deficient number, that is to say 319 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 319 without 319 itself (that is 1 + 11 + 29 = 41).

Parity of 319

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

Is 319 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 319 is about 17.861.

Thus, the square root of 319 is not an integer, and therefore 319 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 319?

The square of a number (here 319) is the result of the product of this number (319) by itself (i.e., 319 × 319); the square of 319 is sometimes called "raising 319 to the power 2", or "319 squared".

The square of 319 is 101 761 because 319 × 319 = 3192 = 101 761.

As a consequence, 319 is the square root of 101 761.

Number of digits of 319

319 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 319?

The multiples of 319 are all integers evenly divisible by 319, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 319 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 319. The smallest multiples of 319 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 319 too, since 0 × 319 = 0
  • 319: indeed, 319 is a multiple of itself, since 319 is evenly divisible by 319 (we have 319 / 319 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 638: indeed, 638 = 319 × 2
  • 957: indeed, 957 = 319 × 3
  • 1 276: indeed, 1 276 = 319 × 4
  • 1 595: indeed, 1 595 = 319 × 5
  • etc.

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 319). 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 17.861). 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.
