## Is 524 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 524 is about 22.891.

Thus, the square root of 524 is not an integer, and therefore 524 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 524?

The square of a number (here 524) is the result of the product of this number (524) by itself (i.e., 524 × 524); the square of 524 is sometimes called "raising 524 to the power 2", or "524 squared".

The square of 524 is 274 576 because 524 × 524 = 5242 = 274 576.

As a consequence, 524 is the square root of 274 576.

## Number of digits of 524

524 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 524?

The multiples of 524 are all integers evenly divisible by 524, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 524 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 524. The smallest multiples of 524 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 524). 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 22.891). 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.
