## Is 579 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 579 is about 24.062.

Thus, the square root of 579 is not an integer, and therefore 579 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 579?

The square of a number (here 579) is the result of the product of this number (579) by itself (i.e., 579 × 579); the square of 579 is sometimes called "raising 579 to the power 2", or "579 squared".

The square of 579 is 335 241 because 579 × 579 = 5792 = 335 241.

As a consequence, 579 is the square root of 335 241.

## Number of digits of 579

579 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 579?

The multiples of 579 are all integers evenly divisible by 579, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 579 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 579. The smallest multiples of 579 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 579). 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 24.062). 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.
