Is 39877 a prime number? What are the divisors of 39877?

## Is 39877 a prime number?

Yes, 39877 is a prime number.

Indeed, the definition of a prime numbers is to have only two distinct positive divisors, 1 and itself. A number is a divisor of another number when the remainder of Euclid’s division of the second one by the first one is zero. Concerning the number 39877, the only two divisors are 1 and 39877. Therefore 39877 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 39877 is only a multiple of 1 and 39877.

Since 39877 is a prime number, 39877 is also a deficient number, that is to say 39877 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 39877 without 39877 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

## Parity of 39877

39877 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

## Is 39877 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 39877 is about 199.692.

Thus, the square root of 39877 is not an integer, and therefore 39877 is not a square number.

Anyway, 39877 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 39877?
