## Is 547 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 547 is about 23.388.

Thus, the square root of 547 is not an integer, and therefore 547 is not a square number.

Anyway, 547 is a prime number, and a prime number cannot be a perfect square.

## What is the square number of 547?

The square of a number (here 547) is the result of the product of this number (547) by itself (i.e., 547 × 547); the square of 547 is sometimes called "raising 547 to the power 2", or "547 squared".

The square of 547 is 299 209 because 547 × 547 = 5472 = 299 209.

As a consequence, 547 is the square root of 299 209.

## Number of digits of 547

547 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 547?

The multiples of 547 are all integers evenly divisible by 547, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 547 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 547. The smallest multiples of 547 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 547). 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 23.388). 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.
