## Is 589 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 589 is about 24.269.

Thus, the square root of 589 is not an integer, and therefore 589 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 589?

The square of a number (here 589) is the result of the product of this number (589) by itself (i.e., 589 × 589); the square of 589 is sometimes called "raising 589 to the power 2", or "589 squared".

The square of 589 is 346 921 because 589 × 589 = 5892 = 346 921.

As a consequence, 589 is the square root of 346 921.

## Number of digits of 589

589 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 589?

## 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 589). 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 24.269). 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.
