## Is 596 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 596 is about 24.413.

Thus, the square root of 596 is not an integer, and therefore 596 is not a square number.

## What is the square number of 596?

The square of a number (here 596) is the result of the product of this number (596) by itself (i.e., 596 × 596); the square of 596 is sometimes called "raising 596 to the power 2", or "596 squared".

The square of 596 is 355 216 because 596 × 596 = 5962 = 355 216.

As a consequence, 596 is the square root of 355 216.

## Number of digits of 596

596 is a number with 3 digits.

## What are the multiples of 596?

The multiples of 596 are all integers evenly divisible by 596, that is all numbers such that the remainder of the division by 596 is zero. There are infinitely many multiples of 596. The smallest multiples of 596 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 596). 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 24.413). 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.
