## Is 588 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 588 is about 24.249.

Thus, the square root of 588 is not an integer, and therefore 588 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 588?

The square of a number (here 588) is the result of the product of this number (588) by itself (i.e., 588 × 588); the square of 588 is sometimes called "raising 588 to the power 2", or "588 squared".

The square of 588 is 345 744 because 588 × 588 = 5882 = 345 744.

As a consequence, 588 is the square root of 345 744.

## Number of digits of 588

588 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 588?

The multiples of 588 are all integers evenly divisible by 588, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 588 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 588. The smallest multiples of 588 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 588). 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 24.249). 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.
