Is 365 a prime number? What are the divisors of 365?

Is 365 a prime number?

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

For 365, the answer is: No, 365 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 365) is as follows: 1, 5, 73, 365.

To be 365 a prime number, it would have been required that 365 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 365 is a multiple of 1
  • 365 is a multiple of 5
  • 365 is a multiple of 73

To be 365 a prime number, it would have been required that 365 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

However, 365 is a semiprime (also called biprime or 2-almost-prime), because it is the product of a two non-necessarily distinct prime numbers. Indeed, 365 = 5 x 73, where 5 and 73 are both prime numbers.

Is 365 a deficient number?

Yes, 365 is a deficient number, that is to say 365 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 365 without 365 itself (that is 1 + 5 + 73 = 79).

Parity of 365

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

Is 365 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 365 is about 19.105.

Thus, the square root of 365 is not an integer, and therefore 365 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 365?

The square of a number (here 365) is the result of the product of this number (365) by itself (i.e., 365 × 365); the square of 365 is sometimes called "raising 365 to the power 2", or "365 squared".

The square of 365 is 133 225 because 365 × 365 = 3652 = 133 225.

As a consequence, 365 is the square root of 133 225.

Number of digits of 365

365 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 365?

The multiples of 365 are all integers evenly divisible by 365, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 365 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 365. The smallest multiples of 365 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 365 too, since 0 × 365 = 0
  • 365: indeed, 365 is a multiple of itself, since 365 is evenly divisible by 365 (we have 365 / 365 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 730: indeed, 730 = 365 × 2
  • 1 095: indeed, 1 095 = 365 × 3
  • 1 460: indeed, 1 460 = 365 × 4
  • 1 825: indeed, 1 825 = 365 × 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 365). 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 19.105). 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.
