## Is 555 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 555 is about 23.558.

Thus, the square root of 555 is not an integer, and therefore 555 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 555?

The square of a number (here 555) is the result of the product of this number (555) by itself (i.e., 555 × 555); the square of 555 is sometimes called "raising 555 to the power 2", or "555 squared".

The square of 555 is 308 025 because 555 × 555 = 5552 = 308 025.

As a consequence, 555 is the square root of 308 025.

## Number of digits of 555

555 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 555?

The multiples of 555 are all integers evenly divisible by 555, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 555 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 555. The smallest multiples of 555 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 555). 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 23.558). 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.
