## Is 497 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 497 is about 22.293.

Thus, the square root of 497 is not an integer, and therefore 497 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 497?

The square of a number (here 497) is the result of the product of this number (497) by itself (i.e., 497 × 497); the square of 497 is sometimes called "raising 497 to the power 2", or "497 squared".

The square of 497 is 247 009 because 497 × 497 = 4972 = 247 009.

As a consequence, 497 is the square root of 247 009.

## Number of digits of 497

497 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 497?

The multiples of 497 are all integers evenly divisible by 497, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 497 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 497. The smallest multiples of 497 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 497). 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 22.293). 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.
