Is 42437 a prime number? What are the divisors of 42437?

Is 42437 a prime number?

Yes, 42437 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 42437, the only two divisors are 1 and 42437. Therefore 42437 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 42437 is only a multiple of 1 and 42437.

Since 42437 is a prime number, 42437 is also a deficient number, that is to say 42437 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 42437 without 42437 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 42437

42437 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 42437 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 42437 is about 206.002.

Thus, the square root of 42437 is not an integer, and therefore 42437 is not a square number.

Anyway, 42437 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 42437?
