## Is 392 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 392 is about 19.799.

Thus, the square root of 392 is not an integer, and therefore 392 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 392?

The square of a number (here 392) is the result of the product of this number (392) by itself (i.e., 392 × 392); the square of 392 is sometimes called "raising 392 to the power 2", or "392 squared".

The square of 392 is 153 664 because 392 × 392 = 3922 = 153 664.

As a consequence, 392 is the square root of 153 664.

## Number of digits of 392

392 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 392?

The multiples of 392 are all integers evenly divisible by 392, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 392 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 392. The smallest multiples of 392 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 392). 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 19.799). 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.
