Is 418 a prime number? What are the divisors of 418?

Is 418 a prime number?

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

For 418, the answer is: No, 418 is not a prime number.

The list of all positive divisors (i.e., the list of all integers that divide 418) is as follows: 1, 2, 11, 19, 22, 38, 209, 418.

To be 418 a prime number, it would have been required that 418 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

As a consequence:

  • 418 is a multiple of 1
  • 418 is a multiple of 2
  • 418 is a multiple of 11
  • 418 is a multiple of 19
  • 418 is a multiple of 22
  • 418 is a multiple of 38
  • 418 is a multiple of 209

To be 418 a prime number, it would have been required that 418 has only two divisors, i.e., itself and 1.

Is 418 a deficient number?

Yes, 418 is a deficient number, that is to say 418 is a natural number that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 418 without 418 itself (that is 1 + 2 + 11 + 19 + 22 + 38 + 209 = 302).

Parity of 418

418 is an even number, because it is evenly divisible by 2: 418 / 2 = 209.

Is 418 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 418 is about 20.445.

Thus, the square root of 418 is not an integer, and therefore 418 is not a square number.

What is the square number of 418?

The square of a number (here 418) is the result of the product of this number (418) by itself (i.e., 418 × 418); the square of 418 is sometimes called "raising 418 to the power 2", or "418 squared".

The square of 418 is 174 724 because 418 × 418 = 4182 = 174 724.

As a consequence, 418 is the square root of 174 724.

Number of digits of 418

418 is a number with 3 digits.

What are the multiples of 418?

The multiples of 418 are all integers evenly divisible by 418, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 418 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 418. The smallest multiples of 418 are:

  • 0: indeed, 0 is divisible by any natural number, and it is thus a multiple of 418 too, since 0 × 418 = 0
  • 418: indeed, 418 is a multiple of itself, since 418 is evenly divisible by 418 (we have 418 / 418 = 1, so the remainder of this division is indeed zero)
  • 836: indeed, 836 = 418 × 2
  • 1 254: indeed, 1 254 = 418 × 3
  • 1 672: indeed, 1 672 = 418 × 4
  • 2 090: indeed, 2 090 = 418 × 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 418). 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 20.445). 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.
