## Is 486 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 486 is about 22.045.

Thus, the square root of 486 is not an integer, and therefore 486 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 486?

The square of a number (here 486) is the result of the product of this number (486) by itself (i.e., 486 × 486); the square of 486 is sometimes called "raising 486 to the power 2", or "486 squared".

The square of 486 is 236 196 because 486 × 486 = 4862 = 236 196.

As a consequence, 486 is the square root of 236 196.

## Number of digits of 486

486 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 486?

The multiples of 486 are all integers evenly divisible by 486, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 486 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 486. The smallest multiples of 486 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 486). 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 22.045). 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.
