## Is 494 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 494 is about 22.226.

Thus, the square root of 494 is not an integer, and therefore 494 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 494?

The square of a number (here 494) is the result of the product of this number (494) by itself (i.e., 494 × 494); the square of 494 is sometimes called "raising 494 to the power 2", or "494 squared".

The square of 494 is 244 036 because 494 × 494 = 4942 = 244 036.

As a consequence, 494 is the square root of 244 036.

## Number of digits of 494

494 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 494?

The multiples of 494 are all integers evenly divisible by 494, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 494 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 494. The smallest multiples of 494 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 494). 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 22.226). 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.
