Is 4957 a prime number? What are the divisors of 4957?

Is 4957 a prime number?

Yes, 4957 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 4957, the only two divisors are 1 and 4957. Therefore 4957 is a prime number.

As a consequence, 4957 is only a multiple of 1 and 4957.

Since 4957 is a prime number, 4957 is also a deficient number, that is to say 4957 is a natural integer that is strictly larger than the sum of its proper divisors, i.e., the divisors of 4957 without 4957 itself (that is 1, by definition!).

Parity of 4957

4957 is an odd number, because it is not evenly divisible by 2.

Is 4957 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 4957 is about 70.406.

Thus, the square root of 4957 is not an integer, and therefore 4957 is not a square number.

Anyway, 4957 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

What is the square number of 4957?

The square of a number (here 4957) is the result of the product of this number (4957) by itself (i.e., 4957 × 4957); the square of 4957 is sometimes called "raising 4957 to the power 2", or "4957 squared".

The square of 4957 is 24 571 849 because 4957 × 4957 = 49572 = 24 571 849.

As a consequence, 4957 is the square root of 24 571 849.
