## Is 331 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 331 is about 18.193.

Thus, the square root of 331 is not an integer, and therefore 331 is not a square number.

Anyway, 331 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 331?

The square of a number (here 331) is the result of the product of this number (331) by itself (i.e., 331 × 331); the square of 331 is sometimes called "raising 331 to the power 2", or "331 squared".

The square of 331 is 109 561 because 331 × 331 = 3312 = 109 561.

As a consequence, 331 is the square root of 109 561.

## Number of digits of 331

331 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 331?

The multiples of 331 are all integers evenly divisible by 331, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 331 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 331. The smallest multiples of 331 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 331). 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 18.193). 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.
