## Is 417 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 417 is about 20.421.

Thus, the square root of 417 is not an integer, and therefore 417 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 417?

The square of a number (here 417) is the result of the product of this number (417) by itself (i.e., 417 × 417); the square of 417 is sometimes called "raising 417 to the power 2", or "417 squared".

The square of 417 is 173 889 because 417 × 417 = 4172 = 173 889.

As a consequence, 417 is the square root of 173 889.

## Number of digits of 417

417 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 417?

The multiples of 417 are all integers evenly divisible by 417, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 417 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 417. The smallest multiples of 417 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 417). 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 20.421). 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.
