## Is 378 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 378 is about 19.442.

Thus, the square root of 378 is not an integer, and therefore 378 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 378?

The square of a number (here 378) is the result of the product of this number (378) by itself (i.e., 378 × 378); the square of 378 is sometimes called "raising 378 to the power 2", or "378 squared".

The square of 378 is 142 884 because 378 × 378 = 3782 = 142 884.

As a consequence, 378 is the square root of 142 884.

## Number of digits of 378

378 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 378?

The multiples of 378 are all integers evenly divisible by 378, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 378 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 378. The smallest multiples of 378 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 378). 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 19.442). 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.
