## Is 344 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 344 is about 18.547.

Thus, the square root of 344 is not an integer, and therefore 344 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 344?

The square of a number (here 344) is the result of the product of this number (344) by itself (i.e., 344 × 344); the square of 344 is sometimes called "raising 344 to the power 2", or "344 squared".

The square of 344 is 118 336 because 344 × 344 = 3442 = 118 336.

As a consequence, 344 is the square root of 118 336.

## Number of digits of 344

344 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 344?

The multiples of 344 are all integers evenly divisible by 344, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 344 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 344. The smallest multiples of 344 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 344). 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 18.547). 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.
